One of the career options Ede Christian University for higher professional education (CHE) offers is nursing. As a Christian professional school, the ECU provides learning environments for nursing students to become professionals who are to exhibit a Christian life style, values and professional ethics. Nursing graduates of our school in general may have a Christian disposition regarding major issues in health care like displaying respect for patients, having a correct attitude, practising informed consent, displaying confidentiality, and avoiding euthanasia etc. A worrying development for educators, though, is that often within a year after their graduation these young nursing professionals may adopt the secularized behaviour predominant in their workplace, even when that behaviour in some respects contrasts with the values they internalized during their nursing education. (Fortunately, it can also be noted that later in their career, the graduates of our school may return to the values and norms they once learned at school. What on first sight did not seem ‘practical’ to adhere to in the workplace, some do come to recognize as essential for their own morally competent performance of their practice). Apparently, the shaping force of the social context of a professional practice can be stronger than the personal beliefs young professionals adopt before their graduation.
