About the Book

This book addresses selected violations of professional nursing conduct and practices that take place in shadows or on the margins of clinical practice—incidents that represent “dark” or “gray” areas of nursing. Chapters identify threats to patient and nurse well-being that are antithetical to nurses’ principles; sensitize nurses and other stakeholders to gray and dark sides of nursing through case examples; and pose evidence-based solutions for eliminating, mitigating, and addressing examples representing the gray or dark side of nursing. The book encourages organizations to promote a culture of ethical responsibility for nursing practices.
