Abstract

Objective: It is not uncommon for new nurses to experience dissatisfaction and underperformance in their professional practice as a nurse in their first year on the job. In this transitional phase, new nurses need a preceptor to guide them. The provision of preceptor guidance with caring value and support for new nurse self-efficacy is a critical element that new nurses require. This study aimed to analyze the relationship between caring preceptor, self-efficacy, job satisfaction, and the performance of new nurses. Method: The research method used a cross-sectional design based on a sample set of 123 new nurses selected using the total population sampling method. Data were analyzed using correlation testing and multiple linear regression. Results: The results showed that there was a strong correlation between a caring preceptor and job satisfaction (r = 0.522, p = 0.0001) and new nurse performance (r = 0.572, p = 0.0001). There was a moderate correlation between self-efficacy with job satisfaction (r = 0.371, p = 0.0001) and new nurse performance (r = 0.240, p = 0.008). Conclusion: For new nurses, the presence of a caring preceptor and self-efficacy are predictors of job satisfaction and performance. The preceptor had to care, which contributed to increasing the self-efficacy of new nurses.
