Abstract

In general, nurses tended to be wary of the use of complementary and alternative medicine. Nurses were also not satisfied with their relationships with their physicians. Those of middle age were more likely to use complementary and alternative medicine but no other demographic characteristics were associated with knowledge or attitudes towards complementary and alternative medicine. Nurses had higher levels of internal health locus of control which was associated with more positive attitudes and knowledge levels of complementary and alternative medicine.
