Background: Nurses have a major role in continued care and health promotion. Thus, their productivity is very important. Although many factors affect productivity, but evaluating the personnel's perception about it has a pivotal role in productivity improvement. Moreover, evaluation is a factor that can facilitate or impede productivity. Materials and Methods: This study was done in qualitative mode. Purposive sampling and open interviews were done to gather data. Content analysis approach with constant comparative analysis was used to analysis data. Findings: Nurses consider productivity both quantitatively (efficiency) and qualitatively (effectiveness). But most of them think about productivity from qualitative view. They consider the effective care which they provide to patients. One of the factors facilitating or impeding productivity is evaluation. Effective evaluation can increase productivity, and current barriers impede nursing team productivity from their viewpoint. Conclusion: Effective evaluation can improve productivity. Thus, it is suggested that current evaluation process be revised extensively.
