Abstract

Purpose: This study aimed to examine the influence of attitude toward job rotation, professional self-concept and organizational commitment on patient safety nursing activities. Methods: In this descriptive correlational study, the participants were 120 nurses with over 1 year of experience working at a tertiary general hospital in Seoul. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, the independent t-test and one-way analysis of variance, the Scheffé test, Pearson correlation coefficients, and hierarchical multiple regression analysis. Results: The average scores for attitude toward job rotation, professional self-concept, organizational commitment and patient safety nursing activities were 3.07±0.43, 5.80±0.87, 3.11±0.55, and 4.57±0.35, respectively. Patient safety nursing activities showed statistically significant differences according to age (F=4.66, p=.011), marital status (t=-2.06, p=.042), and total clinical experience (t=-2.38, p=.019). Attitude toward job rotation (r=.23, p=.011), professional self-concept (r=.36, p<.001), and organizational commitment (r=.30, p<.001) were positively correlated with patient safety nursing activities. The Factors affecting patient safety nursing activities were total clinical experience (β=.24, p=.029) and professional self-concept (β=.22, p=.037), with a total explanatory power of approximately 20%. Conclusion: These results suggest that nurses’ activities need to be planned based on their total clinical experience. and professional self-concept predicted higher patient safety nursing activities among nurses.
