Abstract

                  This descriptive research aimed to evaluate emergency nurse competency in stroke fast track. Eighty-three eligible emergency nurses were recruited from three emergency departments (EDs) of national hospitals in Cambodia. Content validity index of the Emergency Nurse Competency in Stroke Fast Track questionnaire was 1.00 and Cronbach’s alpha reliability was 0.94. The study findings showed that overall competency level of emergency nurses was moderate (E.=3.01, E.SD=0.58). The emergency nurses had moderate competency level in management (E.=3.26, E.SD=0.70) and communication and coordination (E.=3.43, E.SD=0.62). They had low level in professional practice (E.=2.91, E.SD=0.71), professional development (E.=2.36, E.SD=0.74), and critical thinking (E.=2.93, E.SD=0.76). It is recommended that health care policy makers should promote continuing education and training in stroke and guidelines for stroke fast track should be implemented.
