Abstract

Purpose

To investigate how, in long-term care hospitals, recognition of the long-term care hospital certification system affects nursing staff job performance after evaluation for certification.

Methods

Participants were 175 nurses working in long-term care hospitals located in J city/area. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, independent t-test, one-way ANOVA, Scheffé test, Pearson Correlation Analysis, and Multiple Regression Analysis with the SPSS 21.0 version program.

Results

The mean score for recognition of the long-term care hospital certification system was 15.91 of a possible 20, and the score for job performance after evaluation for certification was 147.76 of a possible 165. Significant differences in recognition of the long-term care hospital certification system were observed according to level of education, position, workload, and participation in the evaluation. For job performance after evaluation for certification, significant differences were observed according to age, position, workload, and participation in the evaluation. Recognition of the long-term care hospital certification system and position (registered nurse) accounted for 14% of the variance in job performance after evaluation for certification.

Conclusion

Results indicate a need to provide education related to the effects of the long-term care hospital certification system in order to improve nursing staff job performance after the evaluation.

Keywords: Recognition, Certification, Practice, Nursing staff.
