Nursing care relations require an ethical decision, for an identified problem or a dilemma. To solve these requires a search for good solutions, respecting involved people and their rights. Care decision may come across situations where two rights of the person can oppose each other. Starting from the concept that there are no absolute rights, nurses take over, as their duty, the search for the best ethical resolution conciliating both, in each particular situation. As a reply to this problem, we shall analyze the principle of practical agreementfor the conflict resolution of the persons'rights and assume for ourselves to plan the best solutions for the dilemmatic situations in the nursing profession. Along with the reflection around this principle, we shall approach some examples that will help to clarify those ideas.
