Abstract:

English and Persian databases (PubMed, SCOPUS, Web of Science, Google Scholar, Iran Medex, SID, Magiran) were searched with the keywords such as Moral courage OR Moral OR Courage AND Nurses OR Nurse moral courage. Inclusion criteria allowed for cross-sectional studies conducted from 2000 to 2021 (published in English or Persian language journals), studies that had key words in their keywords or their titles and standard instruments for measuring Moral courage in nurses.   
Results: Of the 175 publications found, 16 were selected after reviewing the title, abstract and full article. Findings of the study showed that the moral courage of nurses was moderate. Four factors related to moral courage include factors related to the individual, factors related to ethics, factors related to the negligence of medical staff, factors related to the organization.
