In parallel with the global aging of the world population, the elderly population in our country is also increasing. Ageism is defined as a multidimensional term that includes different attitudes, prejudices, behaviors, and actions shown to a person only because of his or her age. Ageism is formed by the positive and negative attitudes of individuals in society. However, in most societies, aging and the changes that occur with aging are generally viewed negatively. The negative attitudes of individuals in society towards the elderly also affect the quality of health care offered to them. Nurses are the most interacting with elderly individuals in health care. For this reason, nurses' attitudes and behaviors regarding ageism are important factors affecting the quality of care.
