Objective: The purpose of this study was to find out the overview of nurses’ characteristics and self-efficacy based on nurse characteristics. Method: This cross-sectional study used cluster sampling involved 12 hospitals in 6 provinces in Indonesia, followed by proportionate random sampling, and obtained 1323 nurses. Data collected by questionnaire. Results: There were significant differences in self-efficacy of male and female nurses (p = 0.009). There were significant differences in self-efficacy of nurses in private hospitals and public hospitals (p = 0.005). The mean self-efficacy of nurses was 32.50 ± 4992 (81.25%), the composition value of action-related self-efficacy (82.38%) was higher than coping-related self-efficacy (80.15%). Conclusions: Male nurses have higher self-efficacy than female. Nurses in private hospitals have higher self-efficacy than nurses in public hospitals. Nurses in Indonesia have good self-efficacy. Nevertheless, the nurse's belief in the ability to strive for achieving goals is not as big as the initial belief of the nurse in setting the goals.
