Ethics can sometimes provide moral dilemmas that nurses face when caring for a patient especially if the patient has been diagnosed with an incurable disease whereby the family and their employer do not want it to be disclosed to the patient. In such circumstances the conflict it between ethics and moral dilemma that is enshrined in the NMC (2008) Code of Ethics their role as nurses and moral duty to the patient who wants to know the truth and the patient's health and wellbeing (Benjamin & Curtis, 1992; Edwards, 1996). Thompson et al (2006) stated that ethics and moral cannot work in a vacuum further added that in order to justify moral judgement nurses need prior knowledge of ethical theory. Beauchamp and Childress (2009) added that one needs understanding of moral theory to be able to justify ethical decisions. This demonstrates the extra burden imposed on nurses thereby finding themselves constrained by the difficult responsibilities placed on them to fulfil the NMC (2008) Code of Ethics furthermore those of their employers.
Perseverance is always finding a way though obstacles and difficult situations. It is the most important skill I’ve learned in Tae Kwon Do. To me, Tae Kwon Do is a “yes” philosophy of life and a continuing way to prove to myself that I am capable of achieving any goal I choose. Not only have I learned difficult kicks and forms, but my studies have helped me gain self-confidence, learn self-motivation, and become disciplined. Without Tae Kwon Do, I would have a completely different way of thinking, and doubt I would be as successful as I am today.
