The Nursing Shortage and Ethics: Up Front and Personal.

Online Journal of Issues in Nursing
...We invite you to read these and the other OJIN articles on the shortage and then submit to this column a story about how the nursing shortage has ethically affected you or your patients/clients. Your stories can also be from your personal life (i.e., when you or a family member was a care recipient). You, the reader, can best identify and write stories about ethical issues that you face day to day in your practice as a result of the shortage.
Your stories will help tell about the impact of the shortage and perhaps give insights into ways we can handle ethical dilemmas related to it. We believe that "... ethics is best understood, discussed and informed from issues confronting us in everyday practice, ..." because "Our credibility, strength, and legacy as a profession will be measured by our ethical treatment of patients, families and communities." (Ludwick & Silva, 2001)...
