Abstract

This cross-sectional research aimed to evaluate nursing performance in relation to Nursing Council Regulations on professional ethics of nurse and midwifery B.E. 2550, and to analyse associations between personal characteristics, professional nursing values, and motivating factors with nursing performance in relation to Nursing Council Regulations among professional nurses. The samples consisted of 393 professional nurses in one tertiary hospital. The research instrument was a four-part questionnaire including personal characteristics of professional nurse, professional nursing values with the reliability of .88, motivating factors with the reliability of .94, and nursing performance in relation to Nursing Council Regulations with the reliability of .78. Data were collected from June 1 to July 31, 2015. Statistics used for data analysis included frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, median, Chi-square test, and multiple logistic regression analysis.


The research results revealed that the overall score of professional nursing values was in a good level (92.20%) and the overall score of motivating factors was in a high level (55.80%), while the overall score of nursing performance in relation to Nursing Council Regulations was in a poor level (36.70%). Furthermore, professional nursing values at a good level and motivating factors at a high level were statistically significant associated with nursing performance in relation to Nursing Council Regulations (Adj. OR = 2.81, 95% CI = 1.21-6.63 and Adj. OR = 2.15, 95% CI = 1.26-3.67, respectively).


This research suggested that the administrators should promote professional nursing values and motivating factors. Moreover, training should be organized on nursing performance in relation to Nursing Council Regulations in order to raise awareness of the importance and encourage accurate practice.
