This quantitative, descriptive study was designed to explore long-term care nurses' perceptions of caring behaviors. The Caring Assessment Instrument (Care-Q) was used in this study with a sample of 30 subjects. Utilizing Watson's (1985) theory of human caring, the study sought to investigate opinions of nurses working in a long-term care facility in relation to caring behaviors. The main findings of this investigation suggest that, nurses tend to consistently rate affective caring behaviors as being more important than instrumental caring behaviors. Affective caring nursing activities include being compassionate and offering support. Instrumental nursing caring behaviors include demonstrating professional knowledge and skill. This study indicated that employment status and years of experience within the nursing profession do not appear to significantly affect nurses' opinions related to caring behaviors. Further findings may evolve by replicating this study using a larger sample of nurses compared to a sample of patients
