Understanding One’s Professional Identity
Discuss your preferred professional identity (your professional role) and explain the key ethical standards that must guide your practice in the workplace. Pay special attention to what you consider to be fixed standards and variable standards.
Include your professional aspiration in your discussion, and associate it with a workplace. State your chosen organization’s mission and its code of conduct or ethics, if it is available. Then, state the professional organization code or ethical standard that is established to guide your professional role.
Analyze whether the professional code and organizational code are consistent with each other. Evaluate whether your personal ethical standards will comply with the codes you have identified. Explain why they comply, or why not.
