Abstract Abstract Background: Professional commitment, maintaining nursing competency, and improving self-efficacy could be necessary to enhance the quality of care service in Taiwan. AIM: The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationships among nursing competency, career self-efficacy, and professional commitment in hospital nurses. METHODS/DESIGN: We used a stratified cluster random sampling method for the selection. To take 762 nurses with work experience of more than 6 months were selected from 2 regional hospitals and 3 district hospitals in Taiwan. The nurses answered a self-report questionnaire, which was categorized into four sections: Personal background data, nursing competency, career self-efficacy, and professional commitment. RESULTS/FINDINGS: The results indicate that nursing competency and career self-efficacy of nurses were at a high level, whereas professional commitment was at a medium level. Nursing competency, career self-efficacy, and professional commitment were significantly positively correlated. CONCLUSION: The career self-efficacy and professional commitment of medical and nursing personnel can help to increase nursing competency and to improve the quality of medical and nursing care.
