Keywords:Linear Structural Equation Model, Innovative work behavior, Nurses in cancer region hospital Department of Medical Services
Background: Innovative behavior of nurses is necessary to improve the quality of services in the health care system. Therefore in nursing administration nursing organization administrators should be prepared to promote creativity. To create innovations for use in nursing.
Objectives: 1) to study the level of innovative organization, innovation leadership, domain-relevant skills, intrinsic task motivation, creative-relevant processes and innovative work behavior and 2) to investigate the congruence between a linear structural equation model of innovative work behavior of nurses in cancer region hospital Department of Medical Services.
Methods: To study the quantitative research. Sample was 425 nurses in cancer region hospital, Department of Medical Services selected by multistage random sampling. Research instrument was the 5 rating scales questionnaire with reliability 0.84. Data were analyzed by using structural equation modeling techniques.
Results: 1) Cancer region hospital Department of Medical Services have level of innovative organization and the administrators have level of innovation leadership in high level mean = 3.62, SD = 0.61 and mean = 3.76, SD = 0.71 respectively. 2) Nurses in cancer region hospital , Department of Medical Services showed their level of domain-relevant skills, intrinsic task motivation, creative-relevant processes and innovative work behavior in high level mean = 3.85, SD = 0.53, mean = 3.84, SD = 0.60, mean = 3.70, SD = 0.57 and mean = 3.68, SD = 0.61 respectively. 3) The developed linear structure equation model of innovative work behavior of nursing instructors was congruence with empirical data as criterion as follow: Chi - Square = (Chi - Square = 113.59 df = 57, p-value = .000, GFI = 0.968, AGFI = 0.924, NFI = 0.984, TLI = 0.983, RMSEA = 0.028, RMR = 0.016). All of 5 causal factors jointly explained 89 % of variation in innovative work behavior.
Conclusions: The innovative behavior of nurses in regional cancer hospitals, Department of Medical Services depended on the influence of the organization of innovation leadership in innovation core skills involved in work that influence through internal motivation to perform duties. And the processes related to creation.
