Aim: The purpose of this descriptive study is to determine the attitudes of nurses regarding efficiency and to examine nurses' attitudes towards efficiency according to some of their individual and professional characteristics.

Material and Method: The study was conducted in a public hospital and a private hospital in Ankara. The study was completed with 270 nurses who voluntarily agreed to participate in the study. After obtaining the necessary permissions, the data were collected using the Nurses’ Personal and Professional Characteristics Form and Nurses' Attitudes towards Productivity Scale. The data were evaluated in the SPSS 16.0 program. Discontinuous data are shown with the number and percentages and continuous data with median, mean and standard deviation. Mann Whitney U and Kruskal-Wallis tests were used for statistical analysis.

Results: It was found that the total score average of the nurses (47.74 ± 8.51) obtained from the scale was slightly below the medium level, and the highest score average (65.12 ± 18.98) from the “Professional Commitment” sub-dimension. On the other hand, it was determined that they had the lowest mean score (30.91 ± 17.72) in the “working conditions” sub-dimension.

Conclusion: The findings obtained from this study show that nurses are in a good position in terms of commitment to the profession regarding attitudes towards productivity, while they show that they are negative about working conditions. For this reason, it is recommended to make plans to improve the working conditions of nurses.
