Background: Control over Nursing Practice (CONP) is one of the main positive attributes of workplace environment.

When the Jordanian pediatric nurses have CONP, out comes related to child care such as improving child and family satisfaction and safety might improve.

Aim: To measure the level of CONP and its relationship with both job satisfaction and quality of childcare based on Jordanian pediatric nurses’ perception.

Methods: A descriptive cross-sectional correlational study design was adopted.

A convenience sample of 178 pediatrics nurses was selected from Queen Rania Al-Abdullah Hospital for Children.

Self- administered questionnaires consisting of three survey instruments related to demographics of the participants, CONP level, job satisfaction level, and child quality care.

Results: Pediatric nurses have a moderate level of CONP with mean of (2.42, SD = 0.609).

Nurses' control over practices is positively correlated with their job satisfaction (r = 0.300, p = 0.001), and with their perception toward quality of child care (r = 0.189, p < 0.05).

Conclusion: CONP among pediatric nurses is moderate and nurses appeared slightly dissatisfied with their job.

They perceived the quality child care in their work settings as a moderate quality.

Moreover, results supported a positive correlation between CONP and both of pediatrics nurse’s job satisfaction and quality of childcare.
