Abstract: The purpose of this study was to describe critical care nurses' perceptions of their experiences with nursing quality assurance activities. Using an exploratory, descriptive design, data were collected in a survey, utilizing a self-administered questionnaire. A convenience sample of critical care nurses, who are members of the Canadian Association of Critical Care Nurses, was used. The results showed that these particular nurses knew what comprised the components of a nursing quality assurance program, however, their participation in these activities was low. In addition, the majority identified that the primary purpose of nursing quality assurance activities was to meet the accreditation requirements of the hospital. Finally, the results also identified that all of this particular group of nurses felt that nursing quality assurance activities involved them, and the majority felt that these activities were part of their professional responsibilities.
