Despite the need for educational programs of cardiac patients after cardiac events, the effort of patient's education for cardiac patients in Jordan still not well organized. Besides, patients who are suffering the cardiac event for the first time may have different educational needs. Thus, the purpose of this descriptive study is to determine perceptions of learning needs of Jordanian patients who are suffering the cardiac event for the first time. Data were collected by a questionnaire, the Cardiac Patients Learning Needs Inventory (CPLNI), which was translated to Arabic. It was comprised of 37 needs categorized into eight groups, each need to be scored into one of five levels of importance, from one "not important" to five "very important". Demographic data were obtained with the use of demographic form developed by researchers. A convenience sample of 52 subjects (40 men, 12 women) was interviewed in different units at a Heart Institute in Jordan, their age were ranged from 23-77 years (mean = 55.5 years). The comparison of the need categories over all subjects (mean score) revealed that the two highest mean scores were symptom management (mean = 4.7) namely "when to call the Doctor or an ambulance" and "when and how to use coronary vasodilators tablets", and medication information (mean = 4.5) namely "when I should take each medications that I am on", and "what the potential side effects are of each of the medication that I am on". While the lowest mean score was the lifestyle factors (mean = 3.7) namely "what the term 'lifestyle factors' means". These findings were congruent with the findings of the previous studies except for 'life style factors'. The findings of this study support the need for a well organized cardiac teaching program in Jordan that can be based on individualized learning needs.
