Walking a Tightrope: Understanding, Identifying, and Managing Moral Distress in Prison Nurses is an evidence-based, online educational module that was pilot tested as part of a quality improvement project. Nine RNs working at a medium-security, 1,550 bed prison in the Midwest watched the module and 75% completed both pre-and posttests. Participants provided positive feedback about the knowledge they gained on moral distress in prison health care.
