Abstract

It is suggested that the male nurses feeling of doing an important and rewarding job may be essential for protection against becoming burned out and why they can endure being in ethically difficult care situations. Other institutional support structures like ethics education and ethics rounds are suggested to reduce the level of moral strain.
