Enduring morals through adversity and conflict use to be a challenge. Notwithstanding, our compromise as integral human beings is to overcome milieu obstacles and daily ethical dilemmas. As health staff, it is our duty to take possession of the individual and social responsibility of rendering a quality nursing care. These duties are not easy to cope with, even more if we are aware of the economical, political and social elements of the health model that are definitively influencing the nursing practice. Undoubtedly, enquiring about nursing duty and its consequences is a constant for ethical pondering. Therefore, as moral subjects we must give raise and take advantage of debating spaces in order to assume real changing compromises, moral awareness and strengthening of the profession. As a result and as life quality guards, the general proposal and argument of the present document is to conduct actions and make decisions that, even in difficult times, safeguard the inner good of our profession: humane beings health care.
