Abstract

The study used a descriptive method of research. This study included 260 nurses working in selected tertiary hospitals in Batangas using stratified sampling. The research instrument used in the study is a self-made questionnaire regarding basic concepts of radiation risk and safety. The data gathered were subjected to the following statistical treatment such as frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation, analysis of variance (ANOVA), t-test for independent means and Duncan's Multiple Range Test (DMRT). The study concluded that, 1) most of the respondents are female (66%), aged 29 and below (71%), and are working for less than five years (59%); 2) the respondents are fully aware on radiation risk and safety; 3) there are no significant differences in the level of awareness of nurses on radiation risk and safety when grouped according to age and gender. However, there is a significant difference in the level of awareness on radiation risk and safety when the respondents are grouped according to length of service. The findings reveal that those with length of service less than five (5) years and five (5) to nine (9) years have a higher awareness as compared to those with length of service of 10 years and above.
