Relational Nursing Ethics
The first part of my project consists of journal entries made during the first two months of my research quarter. Some of them are my reactions to the literature I read and others are observations I made. But for the most part my journal was a device in which I tried to articulate people's positions, my positions, and figure out what in philosophy's name I was doing. Due to the rambling and spouting nature of these entries only a chronological order could render them coherent and perhaps show that they improved over time. The second part is a paper entitled Relational Nursing Ethics in which I try to support an ethical inquiry into nursing's relationships instead of a deductivistic analysis of nursing dilemmas in terms of a particular moral theory's rules and principles.
