Nurses as health care workers who provide direct care for patients with Covid-19 in hospitals are at high risk of transmission of infection if they do not compliance with the guidance to use Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) correctly and safely. This study was conducted to identify the knowledge and perception of nurses regarding PPE when caring for patients with Covid-19 in Bali. This quantitative study used descriptive analytic design on 193 nurses in Bali which were collected through survey by using purposive sampling technique. Data were collected using a questionnaire and analyzed using a frequency distribution. Results showed that the majority of nurses’ knowledge regarding PPE were poor (68,9%) however nurses’ perception regarding PPE when caring for patients with Covid-19 were mostly good (62,7%). This study could not involve all nurses at the Covid-19 referral hospital in Bali. Several Covid-19 referral hospitals in Bali did not allow this research to be carried out because they considered this a sensitive issue.
