             Ethics are the set of moral principles that guide a person's behavior. These morals are shaped by social normscultural practices, and religious influences. Ethics reflect beliefs about what is right, what is wrong, what is just, what is unjust, what is good, and what is bad in terms of human behavior. They serve as a compass to direct how people should behave toward each other, understand and fulfill their obligations to society, and live their lives.
    Why is Ethics important?

    Ethics is a requirement for human life. It is our means of deciding a course of action. Without it, our actions would be random and aimless. There would be no way to work towards a goal because there would be no way to pick between a limitless numbers of goals. Even with an ethical standard, we may be unable to pursue our goals with the possibility of success. To the degree which a rational ethical standard is taken, we are able to correctly organize our goals and actions to accomplish our most important values. Any flaw in our ethics will reduce our ability to be successful in our endeavors.

    Nursing ethics is a branch of applied ethics that concerns itself with activities in the field of nursing. Nursing ethics shares many principles with medical ethics, such as beneficencenon-maleficence and respect for autonomy. It can be distinguished by its emphasis on relationships, human dignity and collaborative care.

    Ethical behavior: is based on written and unwritten codes of principles and values held in society.

    Ethics:  reflect beliefs about what is right, what is wrong, what is just, what is unjust, what is good, and what is bad in terms of human behavior.

    Ethical principles and values:  serve as a guide to behavior on a personal level, within professions, and at the organizational level.

    Values: A collection of guiding principles; what one deems to be correct, important, and desirable in life, especially regarding personal conduct.
