Abstract

          This article presents domestic violence and nurses’ competencies in caring for women who have experienced intimate partner violence. Nowadays, intimate partner violence has been known as a global phenomenon and has an increasing trend. Intimate partner violence is the most common type of domestic violences, which can have physical, psychological, and sexual consequences. Women who have experienced intimate partner violence are afraid to access health care services because of their embarrassment, fear, low self-esteem, lack of self-confidence, and powerlessness. These women need more care after being abused. Therefore, nurses should have comprehensive knowledge about domestic violence and competencies to provide nursing care for these women so that they can live normally and are not be repeatedly abused.
