Breast cancer is the most common cancer among women in the world and ranks first among cancers also seen in Turkey. The rate of breast cancer increases every year in the world, although the mortality rate from breast cancer does not increase at the same rate. As a result, various problems related to patients' quality of life and psychosocial adjustment are raised. Measurement of quality of life is an important factor in evaluating the problems encountered in the treatment of health care professionals, evaluating the clinical process and maintaining the quality of life of the patients. Now individuals are more concerned with quality than length of life. It causes a series of changes in the life of breast cancer patients and these changes affect the quality of life. At this stage, the health care professional who should take the initiative is the most frequent and close relationship with the nurses. The most frequent and close relationships with patients are health care professional nurses. For this reason, it is thought that nurses should be educated to patients and their relatives in order to improve the quality of life of breast cancer individuals during the surgical process, discharge and post-treatment period, to handle the patient holistically and to provide a personalized care plan by understanding the situation. For this, it is thought that information and sensitivity should be increased by providing training to nurses.
