The aim of the study was to determine the relationship between nurses' green organizational behaviors and care behaviors and to evaluate the care behaviors of patients receiving care from these nurses. The research is cross-sectional, descriptive and correlation-seeking and took place in a university hospital between April and June 2023. The population of the research consists of nurses who receive inpatient treatment at the university hospital without any physical or cognitive disability in expressing themselves and who work in the units where these patients are hospitalized. 215 nurses and 351 patients who were in the hospital on the specified dates, met the inclusion criteria and volunteered to participate in the research were included in the study. Data were collected using the nurse participant introductory information form, patient participant introductory information form, Green Organizational Behavior Scale and Care Behavior Scale. The collected data were evaluated with descriptive statistics such as number, percentage, arithmetic mean, standard deviation, t-test in independent groups, one-way analysis of variance and multiple linear regression analysis in the SPSS 25 statistical program. As a result of the research, the average score of the nurses on the green organizational behavior scale was found to be 3.82±0.66. Nurses' care behavior scale mean score was found to be 5.23±0.55. A moderate positive relationship was detected between nurses' green organizational behavior levels scores and care behaviors. In addition, environmental sensitivity, environmental participation and economic sensitivity sub-dimensions of the nurses' green organizational behavior scale explain 21.9% of the change in nursing care behaviors (F = 12.999; p = 0.000; R2 = 0.219). The average score of the patients on the care behavior scale was found to be 5.28± 0.71, and it was determined that the average score of the patients in the care knowledge and skills sub-dimension was higher than that of the nurses and showed a statistically significant difference (p< 0.05). As a result of the research, nurses' green organizational behavior levels caused a positive change in their care behaviors. It was concluded that patients receiving care from nurses also had high perceptions of care behavior. Green behavior, which is described as one of the innovative behaviors, is added to the caring role of nurses and creates a safe, healthy environment within the framework of environmental sensitivity, which is a part of quality care. It is thought that it will form part of the therefore, healthcare professionals are nurses, who constitute the majority and have care leadership responsibilities,awareness needs to be raised and their awareness needs to be increased. ·
