The daily routine of nursing care and the ethical dilemmas faced by professionals when responding to the needs of individuals and their families are recounted. The stories told are divided by themes and range from everyday bioethics (information and consent, privacy and communication) to bioethics of the frontier (beginning and end of life, elderly and chronic illness, experimentation and research), but also address the ethical problems that arise in the training of future generations of nurses and the organization of care services. An entire chapter is dedicated to international comparison (Nursing around the world) and to the new challenges of nursing, with a reflection on the recent COVID-19 pandemic and the role played by health professionals in emergency management.
