Introduction: One of the priorities of nursing education is to provide solutions to nurses’ questions so that they can remain in their career and render professional services. Committed nurses work harder to improve their careers. Professional status can boost nurses’ confidence.
Objective: To determine the relationship between professional status and professional commitment in nurses working in hospitals of Kashmar City, Iran.
Materials and Methods: This analytical cross-sectional study was performed on 230 nurses working in Kashmar City hospitals. They were selected by the census method in 2019. The data collection tools were the nursing professional status questionnaire and the Clikeman and Henning professional commitment questionnaire. The obtained data were analyzed with the Spearman, Kruskal-Wallis, and Mann-Whitney U statistical tests.
Results: The Mean±SD age of the nurses was 31.57±6.82 years (35.5% men and 64.5% women). Their Mean±SD score of professional status was 44.09±6.19, and their Mean±SD score of professional commitment was 48.04±9.42. The highest score of professional status belonged to the self-confidence component. The Spearman correlation coefficient showed a significant relationship between the dimensions of self-confidence, treatment team staff, and community in professional status and professional commitment of nurses (P<0.05). Confidence was the most important predictor for professional involvement in terms of professional status dimensions (R2 =0.228).
Conclusion: Health policymakers are advised to take the necessary steps and develop professional status promotion programs and skills related to maintaining professional commitment in nurses.
