This paper revived 5 years nursing ethical studies and discussed the problems and theses then how to accumulate and spread nursing ethical knowledge. The literature reviewed was 177 research articles on nursing ethics published in Japan between 2003 and 2008 .We followed time series of the studies and classified them into ‘nursing practice’ and ‘nursing education’ categories. Then we discussed the studies in detail according to subject, contents and analytical methods. As a result 70% of the literatures from 1983 to 2008 was published after 2003. This shows our interest increased drastically. Previous studies mainly discussed whether case studies or lectures were effective. However, there was no clear discussion how the knowledge was utilized in nursing practice.
