Am I Still Ethical? The Socially-Mediated Process of Nurses' Moral Identity
Doane, Gweneth A. Hartrick
Nursing Ethics 2002 November; 9(6): 623-635
In a recent, currently unpublished, research project that sought to examine the meaning and enactment of ethical nursing practice across a variety of clinical settings, the significance of moral identity was highlighted. This article describes the findings and illuminates how the moral identities of the nurse participants arose and evolved as they navigated their way through the contextual and systemic forces that shaped the moral situations of their practice. The study revealed the socially-mediated process of identity development and the narrative, dialogical, relational and contextual nature of nurses' moral identities.
