Nursing values are fundamental to the practice of nursing. They guide standards for action, provide a framework for evaluating behaviour and influence practice decisions. Despite the importance that can be attributed to nursing values, acknowledgement of them is difficult to find in the current debate about how interprofessional working is changing the healthcare system in which nurses currently work. This article argues that the profession needs to demonstrate that values are not only a theoretical concept but also that they can, and do, have a profound impact on the practical working life of nurses delivering care in collaboration with other professions.
