Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate patient satisfaction with the care provided by nursing students on a perinatology ward. Method: The sample for this descriptive study included 210 patients. Data were collected using an interview form and the Turkish version of the Oncology Patients’ Perceptions of the Quality of Nursing Care Scale-Short Form. Results: According to the mean scores for all subscales in the instrument, patients were highly satisfied with the care they received from the nursing students. Multivariate analysis revealed that the reason for hospitalization was found to be the most statistically significant factor affecting patient perceptions of quality of care. Conclusion: A high level of satisfaction with the care provided by nursing students indicates that the students were able to meet the patients’ needs, which may serve as an indicator of the quality of nursing education and quality of care provided by future nurses.
