Abstract
Healthcare practice today is changing and advancing rapidly and demands highly professional nurses rather than just those with experience. Professionals are generally defined in terms of a particular body of knowledge obtained through formal education, an expanded level of skills, some type of certification to prove entry to profession, a set of behavioral norms known as professionalism, and attitudes that represent high levels of identification with and commitment to a specific profession. The aim of this study was to determine the professional behavior of nurses. A study data of a total of 500 nurses working in a public hospital in Rizhao were collected using a demographic questionnaire and Behavioral Inventory Form for Professionalism in Nursing (BIPN). A high score means display more professional behavior. The result showed that the scores of the BIPN were 5.67±3.01. The highest professional behavior was continuing education (1.99±0.98). The lowest were autonomy and research (0.11±0.05). There was a statistically significant difference between the total BIPN scores and the education of the nurses. The development in professional behaviors in nursing should be assessed.
