Need help revising sentence


How can this be revised? Please help

See example:

Ethics on the other hand are reflected actions that a professional should take when resolving an ethical issue and usually coded, for example, American Nursing Association Code of Ethics for Nurses .

Ethics n.

1.    Moral principles that govern a person's or group's behavior.
2.    The moral correctness of specified conduct.

You shouldn't try to define a word with the word itself. Someone unfamiliar with 'ethics' wouldn't come away from your sentence with any understanding of the word. The organization is the American Nurses..., not Nursing, and their publication is called Code of Ethics for Nurses.


Ethics, on the other hand, are a set of moral principles that a professional should use to determine the proper course of action in a given situation. They may be compiled into a code of conduct for a particular profession, such as the American Nurses Association's Code of Ethics for Nurses.


I hope this helps.
