The journal entry assignment is a reflective essay writing assignment. You will post, to your journal, a reflective writing essay describing your current understanding of your personal stance on ethics in healthcare. The Instructor will post one response to your journal entry, and this begins the journaling that will continue throughout the course. This initial essay is important because it will begin the processing of information and deep insight you will need on this topic as you work toward your final project in the course (due Wednesday of Week 4). The final project requires you to develop a personal ethics statement based on legal and ethical criteria in healthcare.
Journal Entry for Week 1 is a reflective essay describing your personal stance on ethics in healthcare. Review the theorists by reading Chapter 1 “Practical Theory” in the text and then develop your own definition of ethics. Answer the question, “How do you define ethics in a personal and professional sense?”
