BACKGROUND: Differences exist in the perception and enactment of professional values among practicing registered nurses (RNs). Hall's Care, Cure, and Core model was used as a framework for this study. METHODS: This study compared perceptions of professional values of 198 RNs according to their level of nursing education and other potentially influencial factors. An online survey developed by the researchers tested perceived professional values. RESULTS: A significant difference was found in perceived professional values according to level of nursing education, position or title, and professional organization membership. The highest level of perceived professional values was found among RN-BSN students. CONCLUSION: RN-BSN education should be promoted and a supportive infrastructure provided for the continuation of professional values.
