In health care professions, nurses are responsible for direct patient care. So, nurses must have updated knowledge of new researches and have the ability to refine their own knowledge with new tested and confirmed practices in order to provide better care to patient. The roots of nursing research can be founded back in the work of Florence Nightingale who worked as a very first nursing researcher by collecting the data of soldiers’ morbidity and mortality rates in 1850 Crimean war. Cross-sectional descriptive study design was used in this study. A sample size of 133 was selected by using Slovin’s formula. Study results shows positive attitude of nursing students toward research.
