This study was undertaken to investigate the influence of teamwork skill and decision making competency on nursing work performance. A total of 170 nurses more than one years working experience were recruited from two university hospitals. Data were collected during March, 16 to 25, 2016 using a structured self-report questionnaires. Data were analyzed using the IBM SPSS/WIN 21.0 program. Teamwork skill and decision making competency for nursing work performance showed significant positive correlation. The significant predictors of nursing work performance among nurses were total clinical experience (β=.23, p<.001), teamwork skill (β=.61, p<.001) and decision making competency (β=.13, p=.015). These variables explained 66% of the variance in nursing work performance among nurses. The results indicate that nurses’ teamwork skill and decision making competency are factors positively influencing on nursing work performance.
