How do you differentiate between personal ethics and professional ethics?
First Answer I think there is no difference. Either a person is ethical and makes ethical choices or they are not. Answer Personal ethics are the code of values one holds in everyday life. Professional ethics is the suspension of these for pay (e.g., a public health nurse, opposed to contraception, promotes condom use as a condition of her job). Answer Professional ethics, such as honesty, responsibility, and reliability are very much the same as personal ethics; I personally don't differentiate. Where personal and professional ethics may differentiate is when ethics that arise in a professional setting that normally don't occur in a personal setting. The example of a professional nurse who is personally opposed to birth control is required to promote use of condoms is no different that an employee required to assist an employer cheating on their taxes; either you give up you personal ethics to do the job (in other words, conveniently no longer hold those ethics), or you stand by your personal ethics and must find other employment (stand by your ethics). Such professional ethical decisions won't normally be encountered in personal life because if you hold these ethical principals, the question of what you will choose doesn't occur. If your personal ethics don't transfer to your professional life, then you don't really have those ethics; ethics aren't a matter of convenience. Personal ethics held and applied in your personal life do regularly come up in your professional setting with regard to how you treat the people in the professional setting. Again, if you don't use those ethics in your professional life, then you don't really have those ethics.
