Background & Aim: Nurses, who are considered to be the largest group of professional health care providers, face the challenge of maintaining, promoting, and providing quality nursing care. Among the factors affecting nursing performance, self-efficacy has been expected to have the greatest influence. However, the perception of caring self- efficacy was not considered in pediatric wards nurses and no research has been done in this field in Iran. This study was conducted to survey the perception of caring self-efficacy by pediatric wards nurses.
Materials & Methods: In this descriptive-analytic study in 2015, 348 nurses, working in pediatric wards in Isfahan, Shahr-e Kord, Shiraz, BaghMalek and Izeh, were selected through simple sampling. The data were collected using pediatric caring self-efficacy instrument which was developed during an Instrument-making process by researchers. The concurrent validity of this tool was measured with Sherer's general self-efficacy questionnaire (r = 0.72); Cronbach’s alpha correlation coefficient was measured at 0.96; and the consistency of this instrument was measured at 0.97. Statistical analysis was done using descriptive and analytical statistics, with SPSS v.18.
Results: The results of this study showed that pediatric nurses have a good caring self-efficacy perception. According to the results, factors such as gender, nurses 'interest in working in the children wards, and also nurses' satisfaction had a significant correlation with average score caring self-efficacy (P < 0.05).
Conclusion: This study can determine issues and topics to increase pediatric nurses’ caring self- efficacy perception and can be used as a guide for designing training courses for nurses in children's departments.
