Abstract:

Poster presented on: Wednesday, July 24, 2013, Thursday, July 25, 2013

Purpose: The shortage of nursing manpower is a global issue. Retaining newly graduated nursing students in health care systems becomes a concerning issue. This paper explored the relationship between work value and willingness to nursing work among baccalaureate nursing students in southern Taiwan.

Methods: A cross-sectional survey was conducted by using structured questionnaires and a convenience sampling method. A total of 446 baccalaureate nursing students participated in this study. The structured questionnaires included the demographic data, the Work Value Inventory and the Willingness to Nursing Work Scale.

Results: The results of this study showed that the average degree of Work Value Inventory among baccalaureate nursing students was 4.44 ± 0.46 (range from 0 - 5). There were four factors of the Work Value Inventory, including the value of interpersonal interaction (M = 4.68 ± 0.54), utility value (M = 4.52 ± 0.57), intrinsic value (M= 4.51 ± 0.56) and attainment value (M = 4.26 ± 0.55). The results stated that no significant discrimination on the subscales of Work Value Inventory. The average degree of willingness to nursing work among baccalaureate nursing students who were to be engaged in clinical work after graduation was 4.12 ± 1.19 (range from 0 – 5). The correlations showed a medium relationship between the degrees of willingness to nursing work and overall work value (r = 0.31). Each subscale of the work value inventory demonstrated different correlations with the degrees of willingness to nursing work: attainment value (r = 0.37), intrinsic value (r = 0.31) and the value of interpersonal interaction (r = 0.23), and utility value (r = 0.16) respectively.

Conclusion: The results of this study could be the references for nurse educators in offering employment consulting to nursing students, and for nurse managers in recruiting and retaining newly graduated nurses.
