Background: Mothers' satisfaction about nursing care during pregnancy, labor and puerperium is a quality indicator. Nursing students are a part of nursing staff whose responsibilities are to care of mothers and achieve their expectations. Objectives: To evaluate maternal attitude and satisfaction towards involvement of nursing students in their care. Methods: A hospital based cross-sectional study was conducted throughout the period from February to April 2018, at Mohayil General Hospital, Saudi Arabia. 100 mothers who purposively selected were the study sample. Three tools of data collection were used: Interviewing questionnaire, Likert Attitude Scale with high reliability (Cronbach's alpha coefficient r = 0.964) and Patient satisfaction scale (Risser, 1975), its reliability (Cronbach's alpha coefficient r = 0.910) Results: Mothers' mean age was 31.7. The majority of mothers (61%) were fairly satisfied towards care provided by nursing students with low mean score of total satisfaction scale (2.60+0.65) and more than half of mothers (63%) had negative attitude towards involvement of nursing students in their care. The results represented a highly positive significant correlation between the mean score of mothers? attitude and satisfaction. Conclusion: The study findings reflected that the nursing care delivered by the nursing students at the hospital is deficient and the mothers are not much satisfied and had negative attitude.
