Background: Caring as a multidimensional concept can be occurring according to teaching main values. Most patients investigate the provided caring quality according to their perception of caring. Then, this study was performed to assess the effect of caring behavior educational program on Patient's perception of caring. Materials and Methods: This study was a semi experimental trial. The study sample consisted of 58 of nursing students that randomly assigned to either an experimental (n = 29) or a control group (n = 29). Human care theory based on care behavior training program was conducted for the experimental group during training and control group received educational programs as previous years, respectively. Perception level of students was studied by CDI-35 tools and perception level of patients was studied by CBM. Data were analyzed using SPSS-16 software. Results: The study findings favor the effect of the educational program because there wasincreased knowledge and understanding of caring theory and related concepts in the study group Compared with the control group during different periods of assessment. There was a significant difference between two groups in terms of improper care (p=0.0001). There was seena significant increase in each five domains of care behavior in experimental group after education (p=0.0001). While this increase was seen in professional technique dimension only in the control group (p= 0.001). There was a significant increase in the field of patients' perception of care in the experimental group (p =0/0001) and there was seen statistically significant deterioration in the control group (p = 0/83). Conclusion: These results support the idea of researchers based on the fact that learning care behavior through educational interventions can increase the patients' perception of receiving care by students in clinical environments and plays an important role in the development of their academic and practical training.
