Abstract

Background: The crucial role of nurses within the global healthcare system is undeniable, especially considering the high demand and significant stress that characterizes their professional field. From an administrative and human resource management perspective in healthcare, the importance of emotional well-being, along with emotional intelligence and self-efficacy, has emerged as a primary focus of interest in recent research, particularly highlighted in the Peruvian nursing scenario. Objective: This study aimed to understand the relationship between self-efficacy, emotional intelligence, and work engagement among Peruvian nurses, and how these factors might influence the quality of care provided and staff retention in the healthcare sector. Methods: A quantitative analysis was conducted, based on structured surveys that measured levels of self-efficacy, emotional intelligence, and work engagement. The participants were registered nurses in Peru, and the sample was stratified according to different regions and levels of experience. Results: The findings confirmed a positive relationship between self-efficacy and work engagement, corroborating previous research. Furthermore, the positive association between emotional intelligence and work engagement in this professional group was validated. It was evidenced that nurses with higher emotional intelligence and self-efficacy tend to have a greater work engagement, positively affecting the quality of care and their retention in the healthcare sector. Conclusions: Emotional intelligence and self-efficacy are fundamental for the work engagement of Peruvian nurses. These factors not only impact the academic realm but also have essential practical significance in the healthcare sector. The promotion and training in these areas could be crucial to ensure quality care and the emotional well-being of nursing staff.
