Abstract

Generally, nurses have an ethical and legal obligation to provide treatment to persons with AIDS. When it is unclear whether nurses are morally required to provide treatment, they should engage in moral analysis, discuss their concerns with their colleagues and administrators, work within their institution's framework to resolve their concerns, seek legal counsel, or as a last resort consider working in another practice setting.
