Purpose: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the evidence-based nursing attitudes of nurses working in surgical wards and their patient-centered care competencies. Design: This was a prospective, correlational, and cross-sectional study. Methods: The sample for this study included 209 surgical nurses working in the surgical clinics of a research hospital. Data were collected between March and July 2020 using the Nurses' Descriptive Characteristics form, Evidence-Based Attitude Toward Nursing Scale (EATNS) and the patient-centered care competency of the nurses, Patient-Centered Care Competency Scale (PCCS). Descriptive statistics and correlation analysis were conducted to analyze the data. Findings: The mean total EATNS was moderate (53.93 ± 7.18, out of 75), and their approach to patient-centered care behaviors was high (69.46 ± 8.64, out of 85). Conclusions: We found a medium level of positive correlation and a significant relationship between the attitudes toward evidence-based nursing and patient-centered care competencies of the nurses participating in the study (r = 0.507, P < .05). © 2023 American Society of PeriAnesthesia Nurses
