 This article gives a descriptive account of 10 elements of Professional Learning Climate(PLC)as defined below and verifies the appropriateness of each element to patient education.

 We examined case examples of patient education which included instances of both successful and unsuccessful patient behavioral modification,and we concluded a lack of certain attitude towards patients as a problem for nurses as health care professionals engaged in patient education.

 We designated such attitude as “Professional Learning Climate(PLC)” and defined it as follows : PLC is a manner or attitude that a professional possesses. It is supported by professional knowledge and experience and has contributing influence on effective patient education. We extracted the following 10 elements of PLC from the data: “show concern”,“respect”,“believe”,“be modest” “create a relaxing ambiance”,“be willing to listen”,“share personal feelings and thoughts with the patient”,“show an attitude of moving ahead together”,“show enthusiasm”,and “be humorous and witty”. This kind of attitude that professionals possess stems from experiential knowledge developed through practice in an environment conducive to reflective thinking.
