There were 28 males and 699 females with the age of 35.0±10.1 years, and the period of working as a nurse were 12.8±9.8 years.The statistical differences among SDLR scores, the self-directed learning ability scores, types of hospitals, employment position, one’s will to work continuously and to acquire qualification and the existence of nursing role model.
