When I began to inculcate Principle E in my practice, the strongest motivator to do so was poor patient outcomes. Communication difficulties affect patient outcomes (Casey & Wallis 2011, p. 35). So, when things started going wrong, I used Principle E to control situation.
The most important concern for me when I started to use Principle E was related to lack of confidence among nurses. I noticed that my fellow nurses lacked basic skills of communication which restricted them from confidently reporting patient information to doctors. Because there was no confidence in their reporting, there was also the problem of poor documentation.

Ethics is the one nursing principle that I find particularly interesting. Different medical practitioners in the health sector have different views of what can be considered to be an ethical nursing practice. In nursing practice, it is generally accepted that ethical practice has to be the foundation of all discourse between the nurses and patients.
The paper will also address the various approaches and lessons that I adopted towards facilitating my competence as well as influencing the same approaches into having future placements. The essence of the essay I that I am looking forward to putting my learning into considerable context through explaining the learning method adopted by my clinical educator which later led me into critically reviewing the learning methods in place.
since ethics in nursing has traditionally restricted themes of reformation of institutional and expert values, responsibilities, relations, and power by means of a goal of assuring patient welfare, the nursing vocation can look to its past for the ethical capital it will require as it participates in the in attendance instant of health care reform.
