Objective: To analyze the effect of psychological nursing combined with health education on the quality of life of patients with lung cancer. Methods: 80 patients with lung cancer admitted to our hospital’s Department of Cardiothoracic Surgery from January 2022 to December 2022 were selected as the research objects. Those who received basic nursing care from January to June were classified as the reference group, and those who received psychological nursing and health education from July to December were classified as the combination group, with 40 cases in each group. The combination group was given psychological nursing and health education; the reference group was given primary nursing care. The negative emotions experienced, the nursing satisfaction, the pain levels 1–7 days after operation, and the quality of life of both groups were compared. Results: Before the intervention, there was no statistically significant difference in the negative emotions between the two groups of patients (P > 0.05); after the intervention, the combination group experienced significantly less negative emotions compared to the control group (P < 0.05). Besides, the nursing satisfaction evaluation indicators such as targeted measures, nursing effects, individualized treatment, and level of professionalism of the combination group were significantly better than those in the reference group (P < 0.05). There was no significant difference in the pain level of both groups of patients 1 day after surgery (P > 0.05); however, in 3d and 7d after the surgery, the combination group experienced significantly less pain than the reference group (P < 0.05). The social skills, physical pain, health status, physiological function, and other quality of life scores in the combined group were significantly higher than those in the reference group (P < 0.05). Conclusion: Psychological nursing and health education can improve the quality of life of patients with lung cancer.
