Prevalence of type 2 diabetes has increased worldwide due to lifestyle factors, such as obesity and inactivity and nurses have an essential role in supporting healthy life situations. The aim was to describe nursing students' experiences with type 2 diabetes in Jordan regard to prevention and nursing care. Interviews with eight nursing students were performed. Data were analyzed using content analysis. One category and two subcategories were generated: managing challenges in daily life to prevent type 2 diabetes and promote patient safety, managing risk factors, and dealing with difficulties. Empowerment and person-centered care are tools to increase patients’ self-care to motivate them to live a healthy lifestyle within the whole family to prevent and decrease illness.
