Terminal care performance of participants in this study were shown to have poor levels (physical M=20.72/32, SD=3.77, psychological M=20.26/32, SD=3.85, spiritual M=9.62/24, SD=3.65). The attitude of the hospital nurse was significantly different according to the marital status. The terminal care performance was significantly different according to experience of terminal care. The DNR attitude by nurses was positively correlation to physioloical terminal care performance(r=.137, p<.049) but the relationship between the psychological terminal care performance( r=.016, p=.815) and spiritual terminal care performance showed no correlation(r=-.099, p=.157).
