The study used the descriptive research design. Twelve percent (12%) or 10 staff nurses from the population were selected for the pre-test while 88% or 75 staff nurses from the total population were chosen as the respondents for the actual study using the purposive sampling technique. An adapted questionnaire served as data gathering instrument, which was divided into two (2) parts: the demographic data and the questions regarding factors affecting the clinical independent nursing function. Data was analyzed through percentage, mean, f-test or ANOVA, standard deviation and t-test. The following conclusions were drawn: 1) Majority of the respondents are 21-25 years old, female, single, working for 1-3 years, with a nurse-patient ratio of 1:11 and above and were assigned in the medical and surgical wards; 2) Majority of the respondents perceived that the intellectual, emotional, physical and social factors affect the clinical independent nursing function to a great extent; 3) There was no significant difference in the factors affecting the clinical independent nursing function of the staff nurses when grouped according to age, civil status, nurse-patient ratio and area of duty assignment; 4) There was a significant difference in the factors affecting the clinical independent nursing function among the staff nurses when grouped according to gender and length of professional nursing practice.
