Graduated Nurses should have qualified nursing competencies to provide standard nursing practice to clients. Thailand Nursing and Midwifery Council is the organization responsible for quality control of graduated nurses before working in the health care system by developing the nursing licensing examination. Every year all graduated nurses from Thai nursing colleges or universities must pass this national licensing examination in order to be issued Thai nursing and midwifery licenses for working as registered nurses in Thailand. The Royal Thai Army Nursing College applies positive psychological capital to improve the 4th year nursing students’ capacity to pass the nursing licensing examination at the first time by Yokpanya program. Nursing students should pass the 1st exam successfully to maintain professional standards and a good future for nursing graduates.
