Abstract

Abstract: Introduction: Making decision while providing the patients with the best clinical services is the key task of nurses in scope of nursing. since, religion is one of the ethical factors, affecting performance and clinical decision making of nurses, it seems very important to study religious orientation impact on ethical sensitivity among nurses. Method: This study was an Sectional-analytical research. And was carried out with the sample of 170 nursing staff singled out using census methods in Gonabad hospitals. Data were collected using ALLPORT religious orientation scale and ethical sensitivity Questionnaire. To analyze data, we used spss version 20, and Pearson Product-Moment Correlation test, Independent T-Test and One-way Anova Test. In all tests p<0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Findings: it showed that the internal religious orientation mean is 36.39±4.65, external religious orientation mean was 33.77±6.89 and the ethical sensitivity mean was 159.21±14.1. Consequently internal religious orientation was higher among nursing staff. Moreover spearman's rank correlation test showed that there is a significant, positive and poor relationship between internal religious orientation and ethical sensitivity (p=0.01). but there isn’t any significant relationship between external religious orientation and ethical sensitivity (p=0.86). Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study in relation to association between spirituality (religious orientation) and ethical sensitivity affecting decision-making process, and nurse’s ethic outcomes, It seems necessary to introduce and meet ethics and spirituality to this community health-affecting group which may be achieved by an appropriate planning implemented by authorities. Key words: Religious orientation, ethical sensitivity, nursing staff
