Abstract

<b>Background:</b> The ethical climate of hospitals and job satisfaction are two main factors behind nurses' productivity. Yet, there is limited information about ethical climate and nurses' job satisfaction in the operating room (OR). <b>Objective:</b> This study aimed to investigate the relationship of ethical climate with nurses' job satisfaction in the OR. <b>Methods:</b> This cross-sectional study was done on 197 OR nurses. The Olson Hospital Ethical Climate Survey and the Minnesota Job Satisfaction Questionnaire were used for data collection. Data were analyzed by doing Spearman's rank correlation. <b>Results:</b> About half of the participants had a moderate job satisfaction and negative perceptions about the ethical climate of the OR. Ethical climate was significantly correlated with nurses' job satisfaction (<i>r</i> = 0.93, <i>P</i> < 0.001). <b>Conclusion:</b> There are some defects in the ethical climate of the ORs. Health policymakers need to devise strategies to improve both ethical climate and nurses' job satisfaction in the ORs.
