Objectives: We aimed to determine the knowledge and attitudes of intensive. Methods: The population of this descriptive cross-sectional study was composed of 92 nurses working in three intensive-care units in Erzurum province center. Participation rate was 80.4% (n=74). Descriptive statistics were presented as mean±standard deviation, percentages, and frequency distributions. The Chi-Square test was used for bivariate comparisons, and p<0.05 was considered as statistically significant. Results: The mean age of the nurses participating in the study was 28.8±5.93 years The majority (73%, n=54) stated that religious beliefs did not prohibit organ donation, and 98.6% (n=73) admitted that organ donation in Turkey was not enough. Of the participants, 68.9% (n=51) were ready to receive organ transplantation in case of need. Those who accepted to receive organs were also ready to donate. Conclusion: Despite the relatively positive attitudes towards organ donation, action on getting donation cards is lacking, which suggests more vigorous actions concerning donation campaigns and educations is needed.
