Writing as a nursing researcher about the subjects that comprise the nursing profession means writing about oneself. Conducting ethnographic research on subjects within one's own professional culture and interacting with these subjects in the field poses a challenge. Ethnographic research analyses and opens out the horizon of one's own professional culture for the benefit of the potential reader. However, at the same time, the researcher's self within an ethnographic framework is called into question. In anthropology the researcher-subject relationship is deemed a special relationship, and in this article both authors reveal the precarious status of their research object. In this article an attempt is made to let the nursing subjects speak for themselves, while at the same time the authors write about their subjects' social practices an communication processes. To date there has hardly been any German research work within nursing dealing with this critical area of interest. The authors seek to provide an introduction to the constitutive parts of ethnography and the crisis of representation and beyond. In addition, they present two reflexive accounts.
