Analysis of an Ethical Problem in the Nursing Workplace

Analyze the situation in the nurse’s workplace from an ethical point of view.

John Doe, a nurse, has downloaded an application to her phone that allows him to download copyrighted textbooks for a nursing course (that Doe is going to take) without his Internet Service Provider knowing it. John is aware that other people who are of lower socioeconomic status (like him) also use this software program for the same reason (and to save money). John Doe knows that his religion forbids him from using this application to download in this manner. Think about a course of social action; what social values should be used to address this moral issue and conflict.
