Abstract

1. Whistleblowing highlights the positive social behavior that is intended to benefit others while concealing what is sometimes considered disloyal behavior. 2. Loyalty is one of the most important ethical values, but failure to recognize the limits of loyalty can lead to seriously unethical outcomes. 3. It is critical that the nurse contemplating whistleblowing exhaust all internal resources to resolve the wrongdoing before going outside the organization.
