Abstract

This descriptive cross-sectional survey evaluated Jordanian oncology nurses’ knowledge of the guidelines for preventing central venous catheter–associated infection. Poor knowledge was evident from the very low mean total scores and the low percentage of correct answers for each item in the questionnaire.
