The data were collected using the Competency Inventory for Registered Nurses. Then, the data were analyzed by the SPSS statistical software, version 16.
Results: The nurses’ mean score of competency was 164.42+36.03. Moreover, 268 nurses (65%) had high levels of competency. The results also showed a significant relationship between nurses’ competency and age, work setting, years of nursing experience, employment status, membership in the organization of nursing, universities in which the nurses were educated, and interest in the nursing field.
Conclusion: The results indicated the nurses’ high competency levels in clinical settings. Additionally, formally employed nurses and those who were members of professional organizations showed higher competency levels. The nurses who were educated in state and high-level universities also reported higher levels of competency. Therefore, considering these related factors can improve nurses’ competency. Yet, further studies are required to determine nurses’ competency process.
