Work related stress among nurses is prevalent in today's complex workplace environment. One type of work related stress is referred to as moral distress, which can result in increased nurse turnover, job dis-satisfaction, and potentially, affect patient care quality. In this study, the Hospital Ethical Climate Survey (Olson, 1995), and the Moral Distress Scale (Corley, et.al., 2001) were used to assess the relationship between nurses perceptions of ethical climate and their moral distress in a hospital in the USA and in Sweden.
