Results. Half of the nurses surveyed rarely experienced moral problems (55; 52.88%) in their professional work.

In the situation of a moral dilemma, it was important for the respondents to be supported by a departmental nurse (48, 46.15%) and a nurse with longer professional experience (48, 46.15%).
