Abstract:

Session presented on: Tuesday, November 19, 2013

Background: Medical institutions have recently been faced with the task of searching for innovative strategies that can be implemented to achieve high-quality medical services and efficient management systems. In this regard, the nursing sector has also established as its main business goals the specialization of nurses’ roles, a requirement for multi-functional roles, and acquisition of low-cost, high-efficiency labor. As part of its effort to achieve such goals, it has taken an interest in the clinical ladder system.

Purpose : The purpose of this study was to identify nurses’ perception of clinical ladder system and explore the relationship among perception of clinical ladder system, professional self-concept and empowerment.

Method : The sample was 162 nurses conveniently selected from a tertiary care hospital in Seoul. Data were collected using the structured questionnaires including the perception of clinical ladder system scale(Park & Lee, 2010), the professional self-concept scale(Arthur, 1992) and the empowerment scale(Chandler, 1986). Descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, and Multiple linear Regression were performed using SPSS WIN 18.0 program.

Result : Nurses' perception of clinical ladder system differed according to the clinical career stage that they belong (F=7.009, p=.000). There was statistically significant relationship among perception of clinical ladder system and professional self-concept(r=0.568, p=.000), and empowerment(r=0.596, p=.000). The perception of clinical ladder system accounted for 42.3% of the professional self-concept and 41.9% of the empowerment.

Conclusion : The nursing department and medical institution must be supported in their efforts to operate the system in a way that satisfies the nurses’ expectations. Such efforts can enhance the perception of the clinical ladder system and facilitate its efficient operation, which can positively affect professional self-concept and empowerment, factors that have a positive correlation with the perception of the clinical ladder system. This, in turn, will contribute to effective human resource management.
