Introduction: Intuition constitutes a significant factor in nursing practice. I Intuition is defined as a non-linear procedure of knowledge which can be perceived in three basic factors: the emotional and physical awareness or the creation of connections on a physical level.

Aim: The aim of the present study was to describe and compare the intuition levels in the nursing staff working in the Emergencies Department, the Intensive Care Unit and in surgical wards at the University General Hospital of Iraklion and accordingly at Venizelion- Pananion General Hospital of Iraklion.

Materials and Method: The sample of this study was comprised of 122 members of nursing staff. . The instrument used for the measurement of intuition was the Smith Intuition Instrument which consists of 18 closed-type questions.

Results: The overall intuition score in the nursing staff was 53.2 (mean levels). No statistically significant differences were registered in the intuition levels of the nursing staff concerning the work departments or work experience (p>0.05). However, the categories into which the questionnaire is divided showed positive correlation between them (p-value>0.001).

Conclusion: Intuition constitutes an integral part in clinical practice considerably contributing to the formation of nursing thinking when it comes to decision making.
