NRS 415 Academic Integrity Tutorial and Response

Academic integrity details the commitment to fundamental standards and values, including respect, fairness, trust, honesty, teaching, and research. These standards and values offer a platform for directing learner behavior, leading written norms and values into practice (Guruswami et al., 2023). Learners are required to provide credit to other individuals after using their ideas (Anoopa et al., 2019). Additionally, nursing is one of the ethical professions which demand the highest degrees of professional integrity. This is underscored through professional ethics. Therefore, it is important to understand how academic integrity in the classroom links to professional accountability in the nursing practice.

Nursing learners must have enough opportunities to learn academic integrity in the classroom. This is through learning and practicing academic writing skills necessary to ensure academic integrity (Komalasari et al., 2023). It entails involvement in values that align learners to nursing professional standards of practice and code of ethics. Academic integrity demands commitment and conformity to values of trust, fairness, honesty, responsibility, and respect in school (Emmanuel et al., 2021). The learners’ continued commitment to these vital values is essential to the nursing profession, which demands a similar commitment to ethical practice as required by a code of ethics (Miron et al., 2022). The nursing profession also requires self-regulation, which is learned in academic integrity. The enculturation of learners to the academic integrity values reinforces their knowledge of the requisites for ethical behavior necessary for safe nursing practice.
