A complex and contested concept, dignity is recognised as a significant factor in a person’s experience of care. Variations in the provision of dignity in care are reported in the literature and in the media. Many theoretical, organisational, professional and personal perspectives on dignity in care have been described, but the perspectives of nursing students have received relatively little attention. The purpose of this PhD study is to explore perceptions of preserving dignity in care among nursing students enrolled in a three-year preregistration undergraduate adult nursing programme.
