Abstract

Background: Nursing is a highly stressful job. Following a health-promoting lifestyle can assist nurses to reduce work stress and promote personal health.Purpose: The purpose of this study was to explore the health-promoting lifestyles of clinical nurses and related factors.Methods: We conducted a cross-sectional questionnaire survey on 297 nurses at a regional teaching hospital in central Taiwan.Results: Nurses gave themselves the highest scores on interpersonal support followed by self-actualization, stress management, nutrition, health responsibility, and exercise. Nurses who received more social support, had stronger self-efficacy, were happier, had more positive health conceptualization, and were more likely to have internal locus of control and authority outside control tended to follow a more health-promoting lifestyle. Self-efficacy, work shift, and age were significant predictors, explaining 48% of total health-promoting lifestyle variance.Conclusions / Implications for practice: Findings may provide a valuable reference for nurse administrators to create a health promotion culture in hospitals targeted to improve nurses’ health.
