Combatting Moral Distress

Moral resilience has been defined as “the capacity of an individual to sustain or restore their integrity in response to moral complexity, confusion, distress, or setbacks” (Rushton, 2016a, p. 112a). Moral resilience is an evolving concept and other definitions have focused on “the ability and willingness to speak and take right and good action in the face of an adversity that is moral/ethical in nature” (Lachman, 2016, p. 122).

I would like to believe that nurses have innate and learned capacities that can be used to combat the negative of forces of moral distress, burnout, compassion fatigue, and incivility that plagues our nursing profession.

As a result of this one course in Ethics, you have been given some tools to develop critical thinking skills, use ethical decision making models to strengthen and clarify your values. I believe all of you will need to be on an intentional journey to use and leverage these skills to keep your nursing practice resilient and meaningful.

How do you see yourself cultivating moral resilience within yourself, with your colleagues and the organizations where you will work? What specific interventions can you envision for yourself as you continue your journey in the socialization of becoming a nurse? What contributions do you intend to create to make meaningful and sustainable change in your role as a nurse?

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes. Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages. Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor. The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
