Abstract: Morality of nurse supervisors is very crucial for nurses in providing quality care to patients. This study aimed to identify the level of moral behaviors of nurse supervisors expected and perceived by nurses in Bangladesh and to compare the differences between nurses’ expectation and perception. The data was collected from 177 nurses recruited by systematic random sampling at one medical college hospital in Bangladesh. The 5-point Likert scale (0-4) type of questionnaire was developed by the researchers, content validated, and then tested for reliability. The results of validity and reliability were satisfactory. The data was analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistics. The results showed that nurse’s expectation regarding moral behaviors of nurse supervisors to nurses (M=3.94, SD=0.26) and to patients (M=3.95, SD=0.19) was found to be at high level. Moreover, nurse’s perception regarding moral behaviors of nurse supervisors to nurses (M=2.76, SD=0.44) and to patients (M=2.84, SD=0.44) were also found to be at high level. The results of Wilcoxon signed ranks test showed that nurse’s expectations was significantly higher than nurse’s perceptions (p<0.001). This study provides the empirical evidence related to nursing ethics in general and moral behaviors in particular to the nursing profession of Bangladesh. The findings highlighted some certain moral behaviors of nurse supervisors that need further improvement.
