Topic: Ethics in public organizations, are there higher standards in public verses private organizations?
Some believe that it is okay for private organizations to cut corners and even provide questionable information to its customers if it keeps the prices down and does not hurt too many people. You may agree with this or not but given a variety of news media reports over the last several years, it does happen. However, when it comes to public organizations, there is an expectation that every step/decision made in the public arena should be visible and that public organizations are expected to do more with less.
Your paper should address the following questions;
Should public organizations be expected to meet higher standards than private ones? Why or why not?
If public organizations are to meet higher standards, what means should be exercised to assist in meeting these standards without increased cost?
If public organizations are not held to higher standards, then how can private organizations be controlled to ensure that they do not violate the confidences of their customers and meet the same standards as public organizations? Please develop at least two other strategies other than market forces.
Nurses are often faced with challenging obstacles that prevent or impede their ability to provide high-quality care to their patients. Mandatory overtime is just one example of such obstacles. Collective bargaining is one of the tools that nurses use to force positive change in their workplace. Reflect on your own experiences as a professional. Think about how collective bargaining does or does not impact job satisfaction for nursing and the quality of patient care, for example, by bargaining for reduced overtime, lower patient ratios, or otherwise.

Professionalism and Professionalization of Nursing
Nursing has taken many positive steps to solidify its status as a profession. They include licensure, certification, credentialing, and accountability. Professional nursing associations further the professionalism of nursing through evidence-based practices, professional codes of conduct, and standards such as the American Nurses Association Code of Ethics Conduct and Scope of Practice. Nursing associations and unions support their members through various means. Nurses are becoming more involved in the political processes that influence both licensure and delivery of care.
Nurse Practice Acts in each state defines nurse responsibilities, the range of nurse activities and services, and the qualifications for practice. It is critical that nurses are engaged in their professional associations and collectively bring their concerns to policy makers with a united voice.
This week, you will further examine the characteristics of nursing as a profession. You will explore the role of professional organizations in current nursing practice and examine professional codes of conduct and standards. As you review the resources and information this week, you will see how these codes and standards impact nursing behavior.
Assess the influence of professional organizations on nursing practice and health care delivery
Describe how Nursing Practice Acts in each state and the American Nurses Association Code of Ethics and Standards of Practice influence professional nurse behaviors
Legal and Ethical Issues Related to the Workplace
More than 100 years ago, state governments began enacting laws under the ambit of the public’s health and welfare which authorized government oversight designed to ensure the safe practice of nursing. By now, all states and territories have enacted a Nurse Practice Act (NPA). Additionally, state boards of nursing (BON) charged with the responsibility of administering the NPA have been legislatively authorized to develop and promulgate administrative rules, or regulations in some states, to interpret and clarify the NPA for regulated parties, namely nurses.
The American Nurses Association (ANA) provides important nursing practice guidance and guidelines. For example, the ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses is a definitive guide that demonstrates how to perform nursing responsibilities while providing quality care in a manner that meets ethical obligations. ANA Position Statements provide explanations, justification, or recommendations for a course of action pertaining to relevant and current topics in nursing practice. ANA Principles for Nursing Practice are promulgated principles aimed at providing practical information for practice, frompay to staffing, delegation to documentation, and even cutting-edge topics such as the social media. The ANA also publishes the Nursing Scope and Standards of Practice which provides a broad, non-clinical description of the art and science of nursing.
For this Application Assignment, locate your chosen work-related issue/problem from the week two discussion. Based on your week two discussion, write a 4 to 5 -page paper addressing the following:
Your state’s Board of Nursing (BON) approach to your work-related issue in the BON’s Nurse Practice Act and the efficacy of the BON’s approach in the context of your workplace issue/problem;
Two American Nurses Association (ANA) sources from the preceding ANA publications that address your work-related issue and the efficacy of the ANA’s approach in the context of your work environment.
Support your analysis with the information presented in the readings from the professional nursing literature. Refer to the Week 5 Application Rubric and Assignment Guidelines prior to submission.

For its part, JetBlue claims not to care whether Congress wades into the issue. "From the start, our customer bill of rights was designed to be broader, deeper, and more meaningful for our customers than anything that will come out of Congress," says JetBlue spokesman Don Usselman.

In preparing your 3-4 page paper, keep in mind that businesses need to be prepared for unforeseen events. What can the company do to prevent undesirable circumstances and what should the company do when faced with a problem or set of problems? In the case of Jet Blue, the company was faced with a crisis that threatened is immediate future. Jet Blue reacted quickly by stating its remedies and commitments to its customers before government intervention and mandates could be put into place that might have been less favorable to Jet Blue and the airline industry as a whole. Did the airline do the right thing?
Airline travel has changed and continues to change almost daily resulting from the rising cost of fuel. Changes include limiting the number of daily flights, providing bare-bones service to passengers, and rising ticket prices. Passengers are also less willing to tolerate inconveniences such as delayed flights and are now challenging the companies for those inconveniences.
Note that this assignment does NOT require you to prepare a detailed essay. Instead use section headings for each of the topics you address in your paper followed by a discussion of that topic.
