Scholarship and Research

“With relational space as the location of enacting morality, we need to consider ethics in every situation, every encounter, and with every patient. If all relationships are the focus of understanding and examining moral life, then it is important to attend to the quality of relationships in all nursing practices, whether with patients and their families, with other nurses [or student nurses], with other health care professionals, or with administrators and politicians.”

(Vangie Bergum)
