Aggressive behavior has been a dominant health problem in Korea, but only a few studies related to aggressive behavior have been reported in Korea. A descriptive design was used to investigate: 1) aggressive behaviors in patients with dementia nurses experience; 2) nursing management for reducing aggressive behaviors used by nurses; and 3) difference in nursing managements by nurses' demographic characteristics. In Kyung-Gee-Do, Korea, seventy-seven nurses who met: 1) Nurses working in hospitals as full time; 2) Nurses caring for patients with dementia participated in this study. Ryden Aggression Scale (RAS) was used to measure aggressive behavior in patients with dementia (Ryden, 1988). Nursing Management for Aggressive Behaviors (NMAB) was used to measure nursing management for reducing the aggressive behaviors. The participants answered the RAS and NMAB based on their one-month period memory. Descriptive statistics and a Chi-Square test was used to analyze the data using SPSS/PC. Hitting (76.6%), making threatening gesture (70.1%), and pinching/squeezing (62.3%) were the most common physically aggressive behaviors reported by nurses. Hostile language (74%), cursing/obscene/vulgar language (71.4%), and making verbal threats (41.6%) were the most common verbally aggressive behaviors. Touching body parts of another person (49.4%), making obscene gestures (40.3%), and hugging (16.9%) were the common sexually aggressive behaviors. The participants used discussion, limiting behaviors, physical restraint, avoiding the situation, no response, removing factors that cause aggressive behavior to control aggressive behavior in patients with dementia. Twenty-eight percent of participants used discussion to manage patients' making threatening gestures. Forty-five percent of them had over 5 years of nursing experience, and this relationship was significant. Twenty-two percent of participants used limiting behavior to manage touching body parts of another person. Forty-one percent of them had less than one year of nursing experience, and this relationship was significant.
