The purpose of this study was to investigate patient autonomy attitudes for nurses and explore the factors that influence such attitudes. A descriptive correlative study and structural questionnaire was used with simple random sampling methods. The questionnaire included 4 dimensions: autonomy of action, informed consent, health care choices, and decision making. Participants were asked to rate each question from 1 (disagree) to 4 (agree). The participants of the study came from a medical center in Taiwan and agreed to participate in this research. Sample sizes included 258 nurses. The average ages were 30.65 plus or minus 6.09, educational history above the junior college level, employment for an average of 6.41 years, nursing experience for 9.03 years, and 96.9% had restrained their patient. The average ethic education hours were 2.53 (SD=1.46). The results found the average autonomy of action was 3.17 (SD=0.35), informed consent 3.41 (SD=0.32), health care choices 2.93 (SD=0.39), and decision making 3.12 (SD=0.32). Most participants agreed that patient's autonomy should be respected. A positive relationship was found between nurses position (r=.196, P<.001), working experience (r=.162, P<.001), nursing experience (r=.199, P<.001), age (r=.164, P<.001) in patient autonomy attitudes. A negative relationship was found between autonomy of action and patient restraint, but restraints were still regularly used. A negative relationship was found between admitted experience and informed consent. This study should provide medical care personnel with a greater knowledge of patient autonomy while respecting the patient's decision.
