Aim The research aims to assess nurses’ willingness to participate in care of patients with coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) in China, and to identify its associated factors. Background Along with the increasing number of infections, the world has paid widespread attention to COVID-19. Methods This cross-sectional study used a convenience sampling method that included a demographics questionnaire and the Nurses’ Perceived Professional Benefits Questionnaire. The survey was distributed to 1,787 nurses from 36 hospitals in China. Results In total, 1176 questionnaires were usable for this research. 92.79% of nurses were willing to participate in care of patients with COVID-19. Intensive Care Unit (ICU) nurses were less willing to participate, while surgical nurses were more willing to participate. In addition, nurses with high positive professional perception scores were more willing to participate than those with low scores. Conclusion The vast majority of nurses were willing to participate in care of patients with COVID-19 in China. Surgical nurses and nurses with positive professional perceptions are more likely to be willing to participate in treatment. Implications for nursing management To increase nurses’ willingness to participate in care of patients with COVID-19, improving the sense of perceived professional benefits, offering salary and offering paid sick leave for nursing staff are effective ways. In addition, raise the awareness of infectious diseases and increase pre-disaster training during infectious diseases is critical
