Understanding each is important to the ethical decision-making process. However, in this week’s discussion, you will make the argument that the principle assigned to you is the “most important” ethical principle in nursing.
The Principle assigned to you is on ‘beneficence’
1. Create an initial post on beneficence that includes the following elements in a maximum of up to three paragraphs total:
* Define the principle (beneficence) in a way that demonstrates your understanding (i.e., not a textbook definition; using an example often helps).

* Give a nursing example and provide us with a resource. Make sure you cite properly
