Background and aims: Sensitivity to ethical issues is one of the criteria for human care of the patient and the professional competence of the nurses. In addition, promoting the principles of professional performance through emphasis on teaching ethical foundations is one of the ways to strengthen nurses' moral sensitivity. The current study was aimed to determine the effectiveness of nursing ethics training on moral sensitivity in nurses.
Methods: The current research was a quasi-experimental study (using pretest-posttest and control group). The samples consisted of 30 nurses selected from among all nurses of Tabriz Madani hospital in 2014 using available sampling method and randomly assigned to experimental and control groups (15 individuals for each group). After completing the moral sensitivity questionnaire as a pre-test and completing a 4-session nursing ethics training (weekly 90-minute for one month) in the experimental group, questionnaires were completed in both groups as a post-test. Data were analyzed using analysis of covariance by SPSS.
Results: Covariance analysis showed that nursing ethics training had a significant effect on increasing nurses' moral sensitivity in the experimental group compared to the control group (P=0.001).
Conclusion: The training of nursing ethics can increase nurses' moral sensitivity. So, this training method is recommended to enhance nurses' ethical sensitivity.
