dc.description.abstract The purpose of this study was to examine registered nurses' attitudes toward caring. The instrument used to measure nurses' attitudes was the Nyberg Caring Assessment Scale. The tool consists of a set of twenty statements asked four times to establish: a) ideal caring; b) actual caring; c) supervisor caring; and d) caring five years ago. A convenience sample of sixty three registered nurses from one midwestern hospital was used for this study. The surveyed registered nurses exhibited positive attitudes toward caring in today's cost containment healthcare system. There were significant correlation coefficients among the four sub-scales of caring. Results of this study have implications for nursing practice and nursing education.
