Jill, age 28, is an attractive, intelligent, and technically competentregistered nurse who has worked for 5 years in a medical-surgical unit of a small hospital. Her professional colleagues like and respect her, and she habitually attempts to deliver compassionate care to her patients. Recently, she left her job and began working in the busy surgical intensive care unit (ICU) at a local county hospital. Jill changed jobs because she wanted to gain more varied nursing experience. She was very excited and enthusiastic about her new job, but shortly after Jill began working in the ICU, she began to question her career decision. Jill described the more experienced ICU nurses as being “sarcastic and rude”, “destructive gossipers”, “bullies” and “intentional withholders of important information and assistance” any time she asks them for help in learning ICU patient care and procedures. Jill stated, “The ICU nurses seem to be testing my resolve to stick it out” and “they want me to fail” at learning how to work in the ICU. Many of the surgeons who regularly have patients in the ICU are very demanding and act impatiently toward the ICU nursing staff. Jill stated she feels intimidated by both the ICU nursing staff and the physicians. One physician chastised her for asking what he called “a stupid question.” There is an air of unhappiness among all the nurses throughout the hospital. Jill said working at this hospital is like no other situation she has been involved with since becoming a nurse.question :1)  What competencies, ethical principles or consistent ethical themes would Jill employ and demonstrate if she decides she wants to make a plan to change the behavior and presents it to the administration?
