Globally, nursing shortage is affecting all components of patient care process, especially in the developing countries due to their lack of resources. Literature identified nurses’ dissatisfaction with work environment and turnover as causes for the shortage, and the ambiguity of nurses’ role as a cause for dissatisfaction. So, exploring nurses’ role, as a part of their work environment, from nurses’ perspectives is believed to formulate a compatible environment that is more appealing to nurses to stay.
