Abstract [en]

Working as a nurse in the critical care unit may involve ethical challenges including conflict of conscience. Literature provides very limited knowledge about intensive care unit (ICU) nurses' perception of conscience. Considering the influence of culture on the perception of conscience, it is important to study it in diverse contexts. This study aims were to explore the meaning of conscience and the impact of conscience on nurses' practice in the ICU. A qualitative research approach was used to answer the research question, and qualitative content analysis guided the study. A total of 17 interviews were conducted with ICU nurses. Data were collected through semistructured tools by using videoconferencing and face-to-face interviews. Data analysis resulted in the formation of 2 main categories and 7 subcategories. The main categories included understanding the conscience and unlimited efforts in caretaking as the path to a clear conscience. The category of understanding the conscience includes 3 subcategories of conscience as an intrinsic asset and internal observer, dynamicity of conscience, and conscience as the cornerstone of morality. Also, the category of unlimited efforts in caretaking as the path to a clear conscience consists of 4 subcategories including giving full attention to the patient, putting oneself in another's shoes, taking responsibility, and working beyond the job description. Conscience plays an essential role in providing the ethical care among ICU nurses. The ICU nurses felt that they need to go above and beyond to keep their conscience clear. Nurses expressed the importance of following the call of conscience at their workplace, which demanded unlimited efforts to achieve a clear conscience.
