This study is the descriptive research intended for identifying the reciprocal relationship between the knowledge of nursing and performance of pressure ulcer prevention that registered nurses at the aged care hospital possess. A total of 317 nurses who had been working at the aged care hospital for 4 months from March 1 2014 to June 1 2014 were chosen as research group. The data were collected by means of self-reported questionnaire and data were analyzed with descriptive statistics. The knowledge of nursing on pressure ulcer depending on general characteristics of research group had the significant difference in each item of clinical experience, education program, education time and education frequency(p<.05), In the performance of pressure ulcer prevention only the education frequency among various general characteristics showed significant differences(p=.40). The knowledge of nursing related to pressure ulcer had the low negative correlation with the performance of nursing(rho=-.137, p<.05). Among the factors disturbing nursing performance of pressure ulcer prevention the shortage of nursing staff appeared to be 57.7%. From the result of this study it was revealed that both increasing the education frequency of preventive nursing and managerial consideration concerning the shortage of nursing staff were needed more rather than the knowledgement of preventive nursing to improve the nursing performance of pressure ulcer prevention.
