Purpose: This study has been carried out in order to develop and verify the effects of self-leadership reinforcement program for hospital
nurses. Methods: The research design was a non-equivalent control group pre-posttest design. Participants were 64 individuals
(32 in each group), all of whom were nurses working at a university hospital, with less than five years of job experience. Experimental
group was provided with two hours of self-leadership reinforcement program, once per week, for four weeks. The questionnaire for
pre and post test included general characteristics, transfer motivation for learning, self-leadership, communication ability, clinical
nursing competency, organizational commitment, and turnover intentions. Results: There was a significant difference in self-leadership
scores between experimental group and control group (F=15.10, p<.001). There was also a significant difference between the
experimental group and the control group in terms of transfer motivation for learning (t=-5.44 p<.001), communication ability
(F=15.29, p<.001), clinical nursing competency (F=15.23, p<.001), and organizational commitment scores (F=7.21, p=.009).
Conclusion: The self-leadership reinforcement program developed in this study was effective in improving self-leadership, communication
ability, clinical nursing competency, and organizational commitment. Thus, by implementing the program at clinical levels, it
will be a basis for nursing personnel resource administration.
