Abstract

Nursing practice is embedded in contexts that inhibit or constrain emancipatory relationships. This article explores willingness in relation to agency and actualization fostered by emancipative relationships in nursing practice. Opportunities for emancipative choice are possible only when nurses are willing to engage in critical reflection, authentic discourses, and risk congruent action within the constraints of dominant paradigms.
