RSVP for Diversity Dialogue: "Does race impact nurses’ perception of ethical climate?" with Donna Lemmenes, Pamela Valentine, Patricia Gwizdalski, Catherine Vincent and Chuanhong Liao
Thursday, January 26 from 12:00 - 1:00pm in Room J103
Investigators have reported that Black nurses are more likely to leave their positions and experience more ethical stress compared to their non-Black colleagues. Researchers have identified negative correlations between ethical climate and ethical stress in nurses; however, few have examined difference in perceptions of ethical climate across race. We chose to examine nurses’ perceptions of ethical climate and relationships among ethical climate factors and nurse characteristics. Findings suggest future research is needed to explore differences identified as well as the development of interventions for groups identified as having lower perceptions of ethical climate.
