Questionnaires were used to gather data from 391 full-time nurses working in the critical care sector. The data focused on leadership style, employee performance, and stressors. Structural Equation Modeling conducted using SMART-PLS 4.0. The present study introduced a novel perspective for firms that aim to address work-life pressures and improve employee performance by emphasizing the positive impact of ethical leadership.
