Abstract

PURPOSE
This study aimed to identify the influence of nurses' resilience and anger expression styles on their nursing work performance in emergency departments.
METHODS
The study included 107 nurses from 5 hospitals in Seoul and Gyeonggi-do who consented to participate. Data ware collected from March to April 2016. Multiple regression analysis was used to identify factors influencing nurses' performance.
RESULTS
Nurses' performance was higher when resilience was high and anger expression was low. The result of the multiple regression indicated that present working years in the emergency room, work satisfaction, anger expression, anger control, and resilience predicted 39.4%(F=7.27, p < .001) of the nursing performance of hospital nurses in emergency departments. The most powerful predictor was resilience (β=.45, p < .001), followed by anger-out (β=−.25, p=.006).
CONCLUSION
This study showed that the most influential variables of work performance in emergency nurses ware resilience and anger expression. To enhance the nursing performance of hospital nurses in emergency departments, it is necessary to develop and implement mentorship programs that enhance resilience and educational programs that help them manage their anger.
