Holistic care is a comprehensive approach for achieving optimal level of care for patients. Identifying the motivational factors can increase quality of nursing care and improve the healing process. Investigation of nurses’ experiences will provide real and meaningful results in this field. In this study we aimed to explore nurses' experiences regarding holistic care.This qualitative study was conducted on 18 nurses from Uremia, Tabriz, Ardebil and Tehran teaching hospitals of Iran. The data were obtained by interviews with nurses. These interviews were transcribed and analyzed by the conventional content analysis method and using MAXQDA software.Personal characters and experience of hospitalization were identified as motivational and promotional factors in providing holistic care.Considering the role of personal characters and experience of hospitalization in holistic care, paying more attention to nurses’ characteristics and upgrading their communication skills and knowledge are necessary for development of holistic care and are highly recommended.
