Summary Exercise programs are rare in hemodialysis clinics. The study goals were to 1) explorenephrology nurses’ attitudes toward exercise; 2) compare the attitudes between nephrologynurses who had been exposed and those who had not been exposed to an patient exerciseprogram; and 3) measure the psychometric properties of a survey tool to measurenephrology nurses’ attitudes toward intradialytic exercise. Nephrology nurse attitudeswere positive toward patients’ exercising; however, they did not believe it was theirresponsibility to conduct the exercise program. Nephrology nurses who had not seenpatients exercising during dialysis were more likely to perceive exercise barriers. Thisstudy developed a valid and clinically useful 16-item instrument to measure nephrologynurses’ attitudes about patient exercise in four areas: patient benefits, patient barriers,nurse barriers, and health professional enablers.
