The community satisfaction index (IKM) is an indicator that can be used to measure the level of satisfaction of the community or service users through quantitative or qualitative methods by comparing expectations and needs. The value of satisfaction with the services provided will be useful in efforts to improve services and maintain services that are considered good by users. The hospital as a health institution that is directly related to the community will always need services related to the services provided in an effort to improve and service quality. Hospitals have a variety of human resources, both medical and non-medical. Nurses are medical human resources who deal directly with service users. Almost all hospital service users are in contact with nurses in getting the services available. Nurses with optimal roles, duties, functions and responsibilities will be able to provide satisfaction for service users. Services provided as a resource that is directly related to users will have a major impact on hospital institutions. Optimizing and empowering nurses by providing understanding related to training, functions and responsibilities through discussions and simulations are expected to increase the community satisfaction index.
