Purpose: This study was conducted to determine the effect of care during labor, given by student or clinical nurses, on mother satisfaction

Method: Data was collected using the questionnaires, The Mother Satisfaction Rating Scale In Normal Birth, and Newcastle Nursing Care Satisfaction Scale. Independent Sample Test and Correlation Analysis were used for the evaluation of the data.

Results: Higher mother satisfaction scores were obtained for student nurses than clinical nurses at a statistically significant level (p<0.05). The findings also indicated a positive relationship between the Mothers' Satisfaction with the Post-Natal Care and their scores obtained in the Newcastle Satisfaction with Nursing Scales (NSNS).

Conclusion: Higher satisfaction levels obtained for the student nurses can be attributed to the fact that the mothers' needs and expectations concerning the care given to them and their newborns were met by the student nurses through a patient-centered approach during and after delivery.
