This is a follow up question based on the answer provided for this post…

Nursing Role

There is a wide variety of perspectives and frameworks from which to practice nursing. After reading the various framework and theories presented, which most closely matches your beliefs? Please explain why?

Professional Communication (Articulation) – The submission on ethical dilemmas

Professional Communication (Articulation) – The submission on ethical dilemmas and the Mr. Newcomb scenario is informative and generally comprehensive. Recurring parts of speech, sentence fluency, and word choice errors are present and impact the clarity of the response. These errors include missing words, unclear phrasing, inaccurate word choices, incorrect prepositions, and incorrect verb forms.

Content – The submission thoughtfully examines the task scenario of a hypothetical patient called Mr. Newcomb, who is requesting to visit with his mistress, where the nurse would respond by explaining that they cannot fulfill his request of deceiving Mrs. Newcomb, as this is morally and ethically wrong. The paper practically describes how the nurse would apply beneficence, non-maleficence, justice, and autonomy, to the task scenario, by showing empathy, refraining from acts that would cause harm like lying, maintaining a standard of fairness for all patients, and recognizing that Mr. Newcomb has a right to make his own choices. The submission logically discusses multiple strategies to promote self-care for the professional caregiver, which includes allowing oneself to cry and feel “raw,” exercising to find relaxation, and watching a movie with one’s significant other and their dogs. The omission of various components (author, title, date, and source location) for two bibliography entries negatively impacts the retrievability of the sources, requiring further review and corrections.

You have been working as a nurse in the adult oncology unit for the past year. You have developed a close relationship with many of your patients, but Mr. Newcomb has a special place in your heart. He has been diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer and has undergone aggressive chemotherapy. Each day his wife has come to the unit to be with her husband. They have been married for over 40 years and share a deep love. Mr. and Mrs. Newcomb have made the decision to no longer continue with treatment and have decided that hospice care is needed. Over the past few days, you have watched Mr. Newcomb’s health decline, and you can tell from your experience that he does not have much time left to live. Mr. Newcomb has been very open about discussing his death, and you have had the opportunity to learn about his life and the legacy he will leave behind. While you are completing your rounds, you stop in Mr. Newcomb’s room to see how he is doing. You ask, “Is there anything else I can do for you?” Mr. Newcomb has rarely asked for anything, but today he has one request. Mr. Newcomb states, “Before I die, I would like to see my mistress one more time. Mrs. Newcomb is always here. Do you think you could tell her that I will be busy for a few hours tomorrow so I can make arrangements to see my mistress one more time?” Reflect on the following questions before you begin working on this task:

• What would you do in this scenario?

• How can your knowledge of ethical principles be utilized to determine your response to Mr. Newcomb?

• How would this affect you as a nurse and direct provider of care for Mr. Newcomb?


A. Summarize how the principles of beneficence, non-maleficence, autonomy, and justice apply to the scenario by doing the following:

1. Describe how you would respond to Mr. Newcomb’s request.

2. Evaluate how you applied the principles of beneficence, non-maleficence, autonomy, and justice to the scenario.

3. Examine how personal beliefs and values influenced your response to the scenario.

4. Describe three strategies to promote self-care.

B. Acknowledge sources, using in-text citations and references, for content that is quoted, paraphrased, or summarized.

C. Demonstrate professional communication in the content and presentation of your submission.

Are Cell Phones Dangerous?

Write a 5 paragraph essay with the following components:


a. Hook/Grabber:




Background info on the topic

Thesis Statement: inform the reader about what your essay will be about; last sentence of the intro para.

Body Paragraphs:

2 paragraphs containing the pros of the use of cellphones

1 paragraph containing the cons of the use of cellphones

Building Main Points:

Organize with the use of topic sentences that illustrate the main idea of each paragraph.Offering a brief explanation of the history or recent developments of topic within the early body paragraphs can help the audience to become familiarized with your topic and the complexity of the issue.

Paragraphs may be ordered in several ways, depending upon the topic and purpose of your argument:•General to specific information• Most important point to least important point . Weakest claim to strongest claim

Countering the Opposition:

Addressing the claims of the opposition is an important component in building a convincing argument.

It demonstrates your credibility as a writer –

you have researched multiple sides of the argument and have come to an informed decision.

It shows you have considered other points of view – that other points of view are valid and reasonable

Effective Counter Arguments:

Consider your audience when you address the counterargument.

Conceding to some of your opposition’s concerns can demonstrate respect for their opinions.

Remain tactful yet firm: Using rude or deprecating language can cause your audience to reject your position without carefully considering your claims.

Counterarguments may be located at various locations within your body paragraphs.You may choose to:•build each of your main points as a contrast to oppositional claims.•offer a counterargument after you have articulated your main claims.


Your conclusion should reemphasize the main points made in your paper.

You may choose to reiterate a call to action or speculate on the future of your topic, when appropriate.

Avoid raising new claims in your conclusion
