Summary: The purpose of this study was to examine nursing's values as they are lived day-to-day in nursing practice. A nurse's story, a reflective remembrance of a nursing situation, was explored for the illumination of nursing's values embedded in the service activities of the nurse. Using qualitative descriptive content analysis, the story was studied for significant statements depicting activities of the nurse and for the values guiding those activities. The analysis revealed three transcendent values, reflected in every activity: Caring, respect for the dignity of the other, and inner harmony. The analysis further revealed eight actualizing values, individually embodying the transcendent values: compassion, competence, courage, humility, honesty, commitment, trust and hope. The wholeness of the inquiry is presented using metaphor to illuminate the meaning of nursing's values in nursing practice.
