A learning needs assessment is an important component of developing effective patient education. In Jordan, patient's education program for cardiac patients is still not well-organized. Thus, the purpose of this comparative-descriptive study were to assess the perceived learning needs and their level of importance of Jordanian patients who are suffering the cardiac event for the first time and to compare these with the perceptions of their nurses. Data were collected by a questionnaire, the Cardiac Patients Learning Needs Inventory (CPLNI), which was translated into Arabic and administered to both patients and nurses. 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 for patients and nurses were obtained. Independent samples T-test were used for data analysis. A convenience sample of 55 patients (36 men, 19 women) and 29 nurses (6 men, 23 women) were interviewed in different units at Heart Institute in Jordan. The comparison of the need categories for overall subjects (mean score) revealed that both patients and nurses gave the highest mean scores to three categories, namely "Medication information", "Anatomy and physiology of the heart", and "Symptom management". The significant difference between the responses of the patients and nurses were in four items of physical activity category, namely "When I can resume driving", "What physical restrictions I may have", How to know when I can increase level of activities", and "When I resume sexual activity", which the nurses scored higher than the patients. Findings were congruent with the findings of the previous studies The findings also support the need for a well organized cardiac teaching program in Jordan that can be based on individualized learning needs that based on nurse/patient negotiated learning needs.
