This study was carried out to determine the health perception of the nurses and the affecting factors. The study was carried out with the participation of 80 nurses working in the state hospital in Gumushane city centre. The data were collected using the nursing introductory information form and the ‘The Perception of Health Scale’. In the analysis of the data, Kruskal–Wallis and Mann–Whitney U test with frequency, percentage, mean and standard deviation were used and in the examination of the relations between variables, Pearson correlation test from nonparametric methods was used. Of the nurses participating in the study, 92.5% were women, 7.5% were men, 46.3% were graduates, 68.8% loved their work, 62.5% were satisfied with the service and 60% worked in shifts. In literature research, sufficient numbers of studies were found to examine the health perception of nurses. It is recommended to increase the work in this area.
