Little is known regarding the relationship between pressure ulcer prevention, nurses' knowledge and attitudes. This thesis will examine the relationship between nurses' knowledge and attitudes regarding pressure ulcers through a literature review and a survey of a hospital and long term care unit in a frontier setting in one frontier western state. While most nurses will admit they know how to prevent pressure ulcers, they will also admit that it is not a high priority compared to other duties as well (Samuriwo, 2010). Frontier facilities need to maintain continuing education for nurses that educated nurses provide consistent quality care.
