Background: Nurses have a key role in health care organizations. Addressing factors affecting the nurses’ job performance is critical to success of health providing systems. The aim of this study is investigating the effect of individual factors on nurses' performance.
Methods: 575 employed nurses in Tehran University of Medical Sciences’ elected hospitals were entered in this cross-sectional study in 2016. Multi-stages cluster sampling used for gathering information for available nurses. Demographic questionnaire and nurse performance checklist were used. Validity and reliability of tools were approved in previous studies.
Results: Mean and standard deviation of total job performance scores were 217/44 and 31/25 respectively. 45% of the nurses entered in the study had an unacceptable level of performance. Among the seven areas examined in the job performance, working styles and general performance had acquired the most and the least mean score respectively. Also results showed that nurses with less weekly working hours had better performance (P-value: 0.008) and nurses with higher education level had very positive and meaningful better job performance (P-value: <0.001).
Conclusion: The results of present study showed that education level of nurses and their weekly work hours had an impact on their job performance. So it’s necessary to select nurses with high level of education and set their weekly work hours less, in parts of the hospital where job performance of nurses is more sensitive.
