Context: The Health System Development Plan is one of the key steps taken by the eleventh government to promote health services in the country. Aims: The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between the quality of nursing care and the satisfaction of pregnant mothers from the implementation of the health system development plan. Settings and Design: This research was an analytic cross-sectional study. The study population included 163 mothers who were hospitalized before delivery and 18 nurses from maternity sections who were selected by the census method during the 3 months of September 2017–November 2017. Material and Methods: The data collection tool was a demographic data form, quality patient care scale, and a researcher-made questionnaire on the satisfaction of hospitalized mothers in maternity sections of the implementation of the Health System Reform Plan. Statistical Analysis Used: Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, Mann–Whitney test, and correlation coefficient in SPSS-16 software. Results: The results showed that the quality of care in nurses at the desired level (63%) and the satisfaction of mother maternity sections of the delivery system had a moderate level of implementation of the Health System Development Plan (56.3%). The results of Pearson's correlation test showed that there is a statistically significant relationship between the quality of nursing care and patient satisfaction (P = 0.001). Conclusions: The satisfaction of the mothers participating in the research was that the quality of nursing care was often modest after implementing the Health System Reform Plan.
