The Importance of Ethics in the Clinical Supervision of Nursing Students
Nursing Ethics. 1999 Jul; 6(4): 278-286.
This article investigates whether or not an ethical attitude manifests itself in the clinical supervision of nursing students. The data consist of 57 narratives written by nursing students, which were subjected to latent content analysis. The interpretation represents a caring science perspective based on Eriksson's 'caring ethics.' The results showed that some students received good supervision, while others felt hurt and humiliated. The students were of the opinion that they should feel welcome, be allowed to take responsibility and be treated as individuals by their supervisors. Supervision can take a form such that the ethical element comes to the fore in the conduct of the students as well as of their supervisor. Both the students' and the supervisor's disposition permeates all the questions, actions and reflections that form part of supervision, which could help to bring students' ethical sense to maturity.
