ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's view on the right of nurses to make moral judgments at their workplace. According to the author, nurses should remain morally neutral in contentious matters such as euthanasia and organ transplant. However, as individuals in a democratic country, they have a right to express their opinions, but if they do, they are accused of being judgmental. Nurses should be encouraged to discuss issues openly and should be equipped with strategies to cope real situations.
