Nurses often face ethical dilemmas and moral distress throughout various levels of direct and indirect patient care. According to Moon and Kim (2015), patients often die in the intensive care unit, and ethical conflicts frequently occur due to a variety of factors, such as verbal abuse, poor communication between health care providers, and increased incidences of end-of-life issues. I think this is a very important subject to think about, especially when these conflicts can significantly impact job satisfaction, burnout, and ultimately threaten the quality of care for patients. Furthermore, a qualitative study conducted by Henrich et al. (2017) shows that healthcare providers often experience negative emotional repercussions from moral distress in the ICU, and patient care is frequently perceived as being negatively affected.
But there are problems, in this because nurses are very likely to experience nurse burnout in which is caused by these guidelines. Usually, nurses are taken advantage of and this causes them to become overworked and have a decline in patient quality care. This becomes debunked due to the great amount of people that says that it is fine with current conditions but with current conditions things have been only on the decline. This decline is due to many different things but overall this causes poor patient care and nurses to dropout of their positions. And these dropouts cause less staff and more stress on the remaining staff due to overload in their work.
Abstract Burnout affects many of the nurses these days. There are many factors that contribute to a burnout. Sometimes people do not even realize that they are heading towards a burnout.

Mistakes made by healthcare workers might bring very serious problems for the patients. According to a report by Royal College of Physicians, overworked doctors or healthcare workers poses greater threat to the patients.

Stress has been proved to be a leading contributor to social vices such as alcoholism and drug abuse, in most societies today. Stress has had a negative impact on friends, family, and even their fellow officers. To curb this, we need to put in place social measures such as family therapy, to help these officers reunite with their families emotionally and psychologically. If left unmanaged, stress can ruin your career and destroy your life.

This could be done through academic coping- it refers to the use of various strategies in order to manage ones level of academic stress (Hess & Copeland 2001). They also mentioned that the utilization of ‘academic coping’ strategies by students can play a part in mitigating the effects of academic stressors. Through their studies, they discovered that students that seek social support have a greater chance of being successful in their studies and have a better academic performance. In regards to the examination issue, the universities should organize schedules that don’t pressure students into finishing a large portion in a short time. This could minimize the stress and physical health issues since they don’t have to be seated in the same posture for a long time.
