The AIDS epidemic poses difficult ethical problems for persons

with AIDS (PWAs), nurses and other health care workers and

society. Little research has been reported. This study examined

PWAs' lived experience of ethical problems involving AIDS. Using

a conceptual framework combining ethics and phenomenology, the

investigator collected and analyzed data on the level of

descriptive ethics, normative ethics and metaethics and according

to a three-step phenomenological method: Investigate particular

phenomena, investigate general essences and apprehend essential

relationships among-essences. The investigator conducted two

in-depth interviews of a cross section of 30 participants,

including women and people of color. Participants described a

range of ethical problems and resolutions. This study leads to

understanding of the essential structure of an ethical problem

and resolutions to ethical problems involving AIDS on individual,

nursing and societal levels. Results facilitate the development

of ethical and philosophical inquiry in nursing, and improved

nursing care for PWAs.
