Data were collected with structured questionnaires from March 27th to April 17th, 2015 and analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, one way ANOVA, Pearson's correlation and multiple regression with SPSS 21.0 program. As a result, the level of attitude of patient safety was 3.68 score and PSMA was 4.03 score. In PSMA, there were significant differences in practice period(p=.020) and practice satisfaction(p=.026). There was a positive correlation(p<.001) among attitude of patient safety and PSMA. The most effective factor on PSMA was practice satisfaction, followed by attitude of patient safety.
