Introduction: Judgments in nursing ethical issues is a qualification criterion. Promoting the principles of professional performance through an emphasis on ethical grounds is a way to strengthen ethical decision-making in the nursing profession. Consequently, the present study was to evaluate the effect of education on the moral judgment of nurses. Methods: this was a quasi-experimental study using pretest-posttest and control group. The samples consisted of 30 nurses. They were nurses from a hospital in the Tabriz, Iran in 2014. Moral judgment in two experimental and control groups (n = 15 per group) were studied randomly. After completion of 4 sessions (one session a week for 90 minutes a month) of nursing ethics education in the experimental group, post-test moral judgment was measured. Data were analyzed using analysis of covariance by SPSS version 20. Results: The results of the analysis of covariance showed that after the intervention, a significant decrease in the mean score of moral judgment was observed in the experimental group (P= 0.035). Therefore, in the experimental group nursing ethics training improved the moral judgment significantly. Conclusion: Nursing ethics training may increase nurses' moral judgment. This intervention is an effective program to promote moral judgment and can be used to improve the professional qualifications of nurses.
