Objective/Design/Population/Sample/Setting Today there is increasing need for nursing research on a global scale, in order to build a body of knowledge leading to the improvement of the health of individuals, families and communities. (Meleis, (1987) To aid in the achievement of this goal, nursing leadership is promoting the development of nursing strategies and collaboration across nations' borders. To this end, various countries have undertaken studies to obtain the perceptions of nurses in a variety of work settings. Three major areas have been examined: major health problems, nursing care/practice concerns and research priorities. (Hinshaw, 2000) The objective of this descriptive study was to assess the perceptions of nurses at an 800 bed hospital on the Island of Bali, Indonesia. Lists of items under three major headings were examined: major health problems, nursing care/practice concerns, and nursing research priorities. Methods/Findings A questionnaire was designed, reviewed for face and content validity, then translated into Balinese, and validated through reverse translation. Using this instrument, the responses of 57 nurses were obtained. The findings of this study reveal that infectious diseases, and injury accidents are perceived as the major health problems. Disease prevention strategies, and improved nursing resources are the leading nursing care/practice concerns. The development of nursing science is the leading nursing research priority. Conclusions/Implications The results of this study support many of the perceptions of nurses in reporting countries: Few reports exist from Asia. The sample size, and the ethnic diversity of Indonesiaiewed restricts making generalizations to the entire population of nurses in Indonesia. The information gathered from this study will contribute to the ongoing development of a worldwide database of nursing knowledge about health needs, and, inspire the nurses on Bali to take beginning steps toward the strenghening of the discipline of nursing.
