[Clinical session research presentation] The purpose of this study was to explore the level of hope among SCI patients two weeks and three months after undergoing a nerve repair operation. The participants in this study were 29 SCI patients selected by purposive sampling from in-patient departments of medical centers in Taipei City, Taiwan. The software used in this study was the Chinese version of the Nowotny Hope Scale (NHS). Some demographic data and characteristics of illness are also adapted. The data was analyzed by mean, standard deviation, percentage, one-way ANOVA, post Scheffe's examination and paired-t testing. The major findings of this study were shown: 1. The levels of hope were moderate two weeks and three months after the operation. Most patients corresponded to the following three major subscales, namely "come from within", "active involvement", and "related to other". 2. The level of hope was beyond moderate in both post-operation scenarios of two weeks and three months. The level of hope three months following the operation was higher than that of two weeks, but the difference between them had no statistical meaning. Two significant items on the NHS were "I think I can learn (or I have learned) to adapt to whatever limitations I have (or might have)" and "I look forward to the future". 3.The demographic characteristics of the differences in the levels of hope were significant in the support group has or no in two weeks and three months post-operation. Disease related factors brought about significant differences in hope in injury level ASAI-A and ASAI-C Complications has or no in two weeks and three months post operation. Causes of injury, car accidents and falling down brought about significant differences in hope two weeks post operation. The results of this study may provide an effective reference for designing discharge education plans and for continuous nursing intervention with post-nerve repair patients who have spinal cord injury after they have been discharged from in-patient department of medical centers. Key words: spinal cord injury, hope
