I need a help with some ideas about nursing ethics. I need to summarize the main points of the topic and discusses how this is of importance to new healthcare grads. The topic is Ethics in Nursing.

1) Define terminology commonly used in discussions about ethical issues.
2) Analyze personal values that influence approaches to ethical issues and decision making.
3) Discuss the moral implications of the American Nurses Association and International Council of Nurses codes of ethics.

I have a bunch of notes but need other perspectives to draw from.

Thank you,
