What is the moral dilemma about?
A nurse is on duty and works in labor and delivery department. Upon walking into the delivery is a woman who trolled and bullied her when they were in high school because she was big. This led to them not speaking to each other until they finished high school and hoped that they never met each other again. Upon setting eyes on each the woman in labor could not help avoiding her due to the intense pain. The nurse gets a flashback of events and tears of emotions roll down her cheeks but immediately remembers its her job to help a patient.
What virtue or virtues should be shown? (You are here selecting the best course of action)
Call to duty. Regardless of what happened before nurses take oath to serve everyone without discrimination or personal differences. All differences must be put aside and life saving made a priority in the nursing or health sector.
Why is that virtue or those virtues to be shown?
Willingness, honest, trust and selfless are the virtues to be shown. Through those virtues the nurse shows that nursing is a noble profession. It’s a profession where you must do what you must do to save a life despite limitations.
How should the virtue or virtues be expressed, and why in that manner?
In everything we do while giving the nursing services, commitment and self-care is important. While offering the services, we as nurses should never forget to do self-care for the best of our health. We should also know the limits of how far we should go. We should also never forget about  professionalism and the commitment to serve the people that need our help .
Apply Aristotle’s golden mean to the dilemma.
Aristotle’s golden mean denotes that every action needs a balance, and everything should be done sufficiently. Mean is coming to the middle so that its not underdone or overdone (Rachels 2019). ‘A man is not called brave because he kills neither too many nor too few of the enemy. Everything should be done with right object, at the right time to the right people’. If we underdo, then the intended objective will not be made and if we overdo then one party is likely to suffer. Despite the situation, the nurse still what she had to do to save the woman. She didn’t have to anything to harm her, but she helped her.
Tell us how the dilemma involves conflict moral duties (loyalty to community versus to self, professional versus familial duties, national or personal obligations).
The nurse had a commitment of working in the hospital and the main purpose is to save life. So regardless of the circumstances she still had a duty .She never rejected to help her because of their past but did what she was supposed to do wholeheartedly .She didn’t have to choice other than acting professionally and doing what is right and keeping to standards and putting in place the virtues and ethics of nursing

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email (support@essaynook.com) or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at anna@essaynook.com, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
