Attributes and quality are synonyms that refer to characteristics inherent in or ascribed to someone or something. This article describes a study of the attributes of nursing staff development. Results revealed that 16 out of total nurses included in the study did not receive any type of staff development programs since appointment, whereas 61.8% of them attended one program only. In total, less than half of the nurses agreed upon attributes or quality of their received training. Establishment of staff development committees in the public hospitals and planning programs for staff development based on staff and patient needs were recommended.
