Unit-based ethics conversations (UBECs) provide nurses with an opportunity for meaningful conversation about the ethical issues they face in routine clinical practice. The goal of the program is to increase participants' abilities and confidence in dealing with ethically challenging situations. This article reviews results from a formal evaluation of UBECs at one organization. The results of this evaluation suggest the UBEC program provides a transformational ethics experience for nurses.
