Abstract

Descriptive correlational method was used. The respondents were staff nurses of DLSUMC selected using purposive sampling technique who have varying ages, either male or female and with at least one (1) year in the nursing service regardless of the area they were stationed at. Survey questionnaire was used as the research instrument. Data was analyzed through frequency distribution, percentage distribution, mean, Pearson’s r, f-test or Analysis of Variance (ANOVA), and t-test. The study concluded that, 1) Majority of the staff nurses were 21-25 years old, female, and have been serving the institution for at least 1-3 years; 2) On the average, the mean level of cohesiveness demonstrated by the staff nurses was moderately strong; 3) On the average, the mean level of performance demonstrated by the staff nurses was very satisfactory; 4) There was no significant relationship between the level of cohesiveness and gender of the respondents; 5) There was no significant difference in the level of performance of staff nurses when grouped according to age, gender, and tenure; 6) There was a significant relationship between the level of cohesiveness and the level of performance of staff nurses at DLSUMC. Cohesiveness allows open communications and strengthening the bond between the staff nurses, which instigates continuous flow of work. A unified group brings a calm atmosphere and a relaxed working environment, which enhances patient care.
