RESULTS
Nursing performance had positive relationship with focusing manner (r=.45, p<.001), and negative relationship with emotional labor (r=−.25, p<.001). And the most prediction factor influencing nursing performance was focusing manner (β=.41, p<.001) and the other factors were age (β=.30, p=.002), and emotional labor (β=.14, p=.012). The total variance was 37.1% by those predictors (F=25.87, p<.001).
