Everybody seems to have known a nurse, to have one in their family, or at least to have received nursing care at some stage in their life. Nurses are seen to be compassionate, caring and ethical. If a nurse goes off track and does something that causes harm to others, it makes the headlines.

Nurses who kill are seen as deviant and wicked, and should be locked away for life. Of course, this is probably right, in the most simplistic sense. But, what if a nurse thought that killing patients was the right thing to do?
