Conducting research with strong ethical principles is a critical component of being an effective nurse researcher. Consider all or some of these questions as you share your reflections on the importance of ethical considerations in nursing research. In the research simulation activity, which character(s) did you play? How did you feel during the simulation experience? What did your character do well? What did your character not do well and what sense can you make of the researcher’s behavior? What else could your character have done? If this situation would occur again how might you handle it? What resources would you use for guidance and support? What did you learn about ethical principles in research?
