The use of nursing diagnoses plays an important role in assessing nursing outcomes, improving patients' quality of life, and developing nursing practices. This study aimed to determine the perception of nursing diagnoses by nurses working in a government hospital. The study was conducted with 170 nurses working in a government hospital who were willing to participate in the study. Data were collected using a 24-question questionnaire that captured the socio-demographic and work-life characteristics of the nurses and the nursing diagnosis perception scale. This scale consists of 26 Likert-type items. A minimum of 1 and a maximum of 5 points can be scored on the scale. A low total score on the scale indicates that nurses perceive nursing diagnoses positively. Percentile calculation, Kruskal Wallis, Mann Whitney U-test, t-test, and Cronbach's alpha coefficient were used to analyze the data. In this study, results showed that nurses have a moderately positive perspective on perceiving nursing diagnoses.
