McCabe s (2009) research study revealed nursing students were no different from their non-nursing peers in relation to engaging in dishonest behaviors. Academic dishonesty translated into professional practice would mean if a nursing student were dishonest on an exam and the expected learning did not occur, the learning deficit could become an issue of life or death for their patients (Bavier, 2009; Gaberson, 1997; McCabe, 2009; Ridenour, 2007).
