This study analyzed patients’ perceptions of their nurses’ willingness to engage in interaction and patients’ satisfaction in communication about health with their nurses (N = 270). Results indicated that a strong and significant positive correlation exists between patients’ perceptions of their nurse’s interaction engagement and their satisfaction with their relationship with their nurse (r = .70). Results also indicate a strong and significant negative correlation exists between patients’ perceptions of their nurse’s closedness to the relationship and the patient's relational satisfaction with their nurse (r = -.55).
