Considerations in Ethics
Every Profession needs a code of Ethics. Some important questions to create critical thinking about a code of ethics (Howard, 2001) are:
1.Reciprocity: Does the rule apply to you and are you initating or receiving the action?
- Universality: Do you want the rules to apply to everyone?
- Consistency: Is the system of rule logiclly consistent?
- Actualization: Does the rule provide guidance for behavior?

Watch your words, they become your actions;
Watch your actions, they become your habits;
Watch your habits, they become your character;
Watch your character, it will beomce your destiny.”
