Abstract
The purpose of this study was to investigate factors related to confidence to perform cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) for nurse. The subjects in this study were 238 nurses who have over 6-month working experience in a hospital, and the collected data were analyzed by using the SPSS 21.0 program. The factors related to confidence to perform CPR for nurses were their career, their attitude towards CPR, number of cardiac massage experience, number of CPR educational experience, and their working department. The outcome of this study reveals that a regular and systemic educational program is necessary for nurses to improve the confidence to perform CPR, which can enhance their positive attitude towards CPR performance considering their career and working department.
