The purposes of this study were to examine emotional quotient, organizational climate and managerial decision making ability; to analyze relationships and predictors of managerial decision making ability of professional nurses working in Primary Care Unit, Region 1. Study subjects consisted of 329 professional nurses selected by stratified random sampling. Study instruments were Working Experiences including work duration and working characteristics, Emotional Quotient (Department of Mental Health,2000), Organizational Climate (Likert & Likert,1976), and Managerial Decision Making Ability (Marquis & Huston,1996 ; Gordon, 1991) Questionnaires. These questionnaires were tested for content validity and reliability with alpha of .98, .97, and .96 respectively. Statistical methods of frequency, mean, standard deviation, Pearson's product moment correlation coefficient, and stepwise multiple regression were used to analyze study data. Major findings were as follows : 1. There were a normal level of emotional quotient, with sum score of 169.95, a middle level of organizational climate, with mean score of 3.42, and a middle level of managerial decision making ability of professional nurses Primary Care Unit, with mean score of 2.10 2. Emotional quotient, work duration, organizational climate, and full-time working were significantly related to managerial decision making ability of professional nurses at .05 level. (r = .839, .678, .627, and .397 respectively, p<.05) 3. Factors significantly predicted managerial decision making ability of professional nurses were emotional quotient, work duration, full-time working, and organizational climate respectively at .05 level. These predictors were accounted for 77.1 percents of variance (R2= .771). The study equation was as follow: Managerial Decision Making = .557 Z (Emotional quotient) + .234 Z( Work duration) + .127 Z( Full-time working) + .151 Z (Organizational climate) These findings indicated that emotional quotient, organizational climate, work duration and full-time working are important factors to increase managerial decision making ability of professional nurses.
