Abstract

Objective: This research aims to identify the factors most closely related to the mental workload of nurses during interactions through nursing care in the intensive care unit. Method: This study is quantitative cross-sectional research using a questionnaire for data collection. This study used total population sampling of 129 nurses working in the intensive care unit. The data was analyzed using Chi-Square and multiple logistic regression. Result: The result of the logistic regression test showed that the motivation factor (p = 0.022; α = 0.05) is the most influential variable in the mental workload of nurses compared to the other variables (individual, task, and organizational factors). Conclusion: Hospitals can optimize socialization through a reward system as well as implement a competence and soft skill development program for nurses.
