Assessment of the Quality of Nursing Care From Perspectives of Nurses Who Experienced Hospitalization as Patients.


:Nurses as patients or caregivers evaluated their care differently than nonnurses. A qualitative design with content analysis was used to provide an assessment of the quality of nursing care by examining nurses' perceptions as recipients of care. The 231 participants were registered nurses recruited from 8 hospitals in Amman, Jordan. Participants evaluated the quality of nursing care as either high (29.5%) or low (70.5%). Four improvement themes emerged: improving competency, serve with caring, professionalism, and administrative factors.
