Abstract

This study used a non-experimental descriptive method of research. Using purposive sampling technique, the respondents consisted of staff nurses in selected hospitals in Cavite. The data gathering instrument was a questionnaire, which was adapted from an undergraduate thesis by De Villa, Salazar and Sevilla (2001) entitled “The performance status of community health nurses functions in selected municipalities in Cavite” and was modified accordingly. The statistical treatments utilized were frequency, percentage, f-test or ANOVA and t-test. The study concluded that, 1) Majority of the respondents were 24-27 years old, female, single, had more than one (1) year of experience, had handled more than 10 patients and had monthly income of P10,000 and below; 2) The overall mean level of performance of independent nursing functions by staff nurses was 4.35. This indicates that the nurses perform their independent nursing functions in a moderate extent; 3) The level of performance of independent nursing functions of staff nurses was not significantly related to age, gender, civil status, length of experience and monthly income; 4) The level of performance of independent nursing functions by staff nurses was significantly related to nurse to patient ratio; 5) There was a significant difference in the level of performance of independent nursing functions by staff nurses when grouped according to nurse to patient ratio.
