Abstract: 

Background: Health communication (HC) is considered an important task of nurses to provide high quality and holistic care as well as to improve patient health. The nursing student–patient HC is an abstract concept and needs to be clarified. Therefore, this study was conducted to increase the knowledge about nursing students’ HC with patients by considering various participants’ viewpoints.
Materials and Methods: In this conventional qualitative content analysis, 18 semi?structured interviews were conducted with six nursing students, six nursing instructors, and six patients in educational hospitals affiliated to the University of Medical Sciences. Credibility, confirmability, dependability, and transferability were established to validate the trustworthiness of the data. The process of data collection and analysis lasted 9 months.
Results: After data analysis, two categories were generated: (A) “junior nursing student–atient communication, ” with two subcategories of“performing social communication with patients” and “failure to build therapeutic relationships with patients, ” and (B) “senior nursing student–atient communication” with two subcategories of “establishing effective communication with patients” and “performing one?ay communication with patients.”Conclusions: More attention should be paid to improve HC through shifting towards student?centered approaches in nursing curriculum. Further, role model nurses and clinical educators should guide nursing students for institutionalizing HC in future nurses.
