    Abstract

    This study used Heideggerian phenomenology to: 1) explore professional practice values and ethical concerns of Hispanic nurses practicing in the Pacific Northwest; and 2) describe values conflicts experienced by Hispanic nurses in clinical practice. Twenty-seven Hispanic nurses were interviewed about nursing practice experiences. Themes included: obligation to serve the Hispanic community; correct cultural mistakes; teach about racism and discrimination; protect professional relationships; act as interpreter and cultural broker; balance additional workload; and represent all Hispanic nurses. Recommendations are included for creating an inclusive work environment that values the wisdom of diverse communities of nurses consistent with ICN Code of Ethics.
