Abstract

Professional Empowerment increases the opportunities of professional growth. It relates to both external and internal beliefs and attitudes. Considering the deficit of nursing professionals around the world, it is essential to empower the current nursing community to manage the aging matters and burnouts. The prime objective of this study was to examine the relationships among the Social Support (SS) towards the professional empowerment (PE) of the registered nurses in Sri Lanka who is currently following their undergraduate studies. A questionnaire survey was used to test the hypothesis which were distributed among 191 female nurses of state hospitals in Sri Lanka. According to the descriptive analysis, the responses were close to the average to agreed level in the results. The highest standard deviation belongs to community support with a level of 0.82. This is illustrated that community support has a comparatively higher variance. Based on the Kolmogorov test it was assumed that the data were normally distributed, and the parametric techniques can be applied in the analysis with pearson correlation and the regression analysis. The results indicated that all three factors have moderate association with the professional empowerment. For further research it is suggested that different factors should be considered towards the professional empowerment in various categorical hospitals in Sri Lanka.
