Moral sensitivity is one of the most important factors in improving the quality of nursing cares and nurses' performance. This research aimed to determine the relationship between moral sensitivity and self- efficacy in operating room nurses affiliated to educational- therapeutic centers in Ardabil University of medical sciences. This descriptive-correlation study was carried out on a sample of 144 nurses of operating room by census method in 2017. Data were collected by using moral sensitivity standard questionnaire and clinical performance self- efficacy. Data were analyzed using statistical tests: Pearson correlation coefficient, independent t- test and one way ANOVA by SPSS15 software. The mean of nurses' age was 30±6.07 years old. The majority of nurses were female (%54) and majority of them were in operating room discipline (%59). The mean and standard deviation of moral sensitivity score was 87±11.00 and the total self-efficacy was 129±13.00. Pearson correlation coefficient showed a significant statistical correlation between self-efficacy score and moral sensitivity of nurses (P<0.0001, r=0.882). The results of this study showed that moral sensitivity and self-efficiency of operating room nurses is high. Furthermore, it seems that high moral sensitivity increases self-efficacy. However, moral sensitivity and self-efficacy of nurses can be improved by holding ethical and professional workshops.
