Introduction: Rationality and ethics are essential in the jobs which serve the people. The nursing with many moral aspects plays a key role in implementing a health care system.
Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the effect of professional ethics program (in person and e-learning) on ethical performance of nurses in the emergency ward of armed forces -dependent hospitals..
Materials and Methods: The present study was a semi-experimental and pre-post-test study done on a control group in 2018 in three stages including before the intervention, after intervention and one month after intervention. Three groups (Control, face to face training and E-learning) were evaluated using the questionnaire of nurses’ ethical performance.A one-day workshop for in-person group and Shahab site e-learning for virtual education were arranged.. In the present study, sample population included nurses in the emergency ward of two selected armed forces hospitals in Tehran who are eligible and have inclusion criteria. After filling in the questionnaires, the data were analyzed in three stages using SPSS 25 (P<0.001).
Results: The results of the study showed that there was no significant difference in the ethical performance of nurses before the intervention in the pre-test between the three groups. While there was a statistically significant difference in the in-person training and virtual education groups in the first and second post-tests, but a higher statistically significant difference observed in the in-person training group.
Discussion and Conclusion: Considering the positive effects of professional ethics training to improve the ethical performance of emergency ward nurses, it is suggested that different training and planning methods be used to improve the status quo. However, based on the results of the study, in-person training is prioritized.
Keywords: Emergency Service, E-learning, Virtual Education, Nurses Ethical Performance, Professional Ethics, Training.
