The purpose of this study was to assess the ethical decision making levels of nurses in HIV/AIDS situations. Using an adapted form of Crisham's Nursing Dilemma Test, RNs in various settings in Ohio ranked their reasons for action in responding to vignettes. Findings suggest that nurses are basing their clinical decisions in HIV/AIDS situations on practical considerations rather than on nursing principles. Education programs based on the findings from this study will enhance the use of nursing principles.
