摘要

The aim of this study was to explore Taiwanese nurses' LTC competence and to examine its relationship with their LTC-related knowledge, care intention, and practical experience. The total sampling was selected from nurses who participated in a 2013 LTC course offered by the Ministry of Health and Welfare. Participants in this study (n = 122) voluntarily provided email addresses and responded to an online survey. A self-developed scale with acceptable reliability and validity was used for data collection. Findings from this study showed median high levels of LTC nursing competence, which was found to be positively correlated with LTC knowledge, care intention, practical experience, continuing education, and marital status. The study revealed that through on-the-job training, nurses' LTC knowledge, care intention, practical experience and nursing competence can be improved, which will benefit the quality of care for LTC clients.
