Multicultural Ethics in Nursing Education: A Potential Threat to Responsible Practice.
Kikuchi, June F.
Journal of Professional Nursing, v12 n3 p159-65 May-Jun 1996
Responsible nursing practice cannot be realized under multicultural, relativist ethics. An alternate ethical basis for practice that is grounded in moderate realism is transcultural ethics, which argues that natural human needs, inherent in common human nature, can be determined empirically and what constitutes a good can be derived therefrom.
