Objective: The study aimed to explore the levels and relationship of motivation for self-development, family support for self-development, organizational climate for self-development, and self-development among registered nurses who worked at health-promoting hospitals in the Health Service Region 12. Methods: Purposive sampling was used to include 111 registered nurses who had at least one year of experience with their health-promoting hospital. Data were collected through Google Forms by questionnaire comprised of: I) demographic data, II) motivation underpinning Mcclelland, III) family support underpinning House, IV) organizational climate underpinning Stringer, and V) self-development underpinning Marquis and Huston. The questionnaire CVI values were .97, .98, .98, and .98, respectively and the reliability values of Cronbach’s alpha coefficients were .87, .96, .96, and .96, respectively. Data analysis used descriptive statistics and Spearman’s correlation coefficient. Results: Most samples were female (94.60%) and graduated with a
bachelor’s degree (96.40%). The majority were aged between 36 to 45 years old (36.10%), had a working period of 10 years or more (59.50%), and most of them experienced self-development by attending the training course (97.60%.) The results showed the median score of self-development (MD = 4.00, IQR = .50), motivation for self-development (MD = 4.18, IQR = .41), family support for self-development (MD = 3.93, IQR = .41) and organizational climate for self-development (M = 4.03, SD = .59) were at a high level. Furthermore, the study showed that motivation for self-development (rs = .52), family support for selfdevelopment (rs = .52), and organizational climate for self-development (rs = .58) had a positive relationship
with self-development, significantly at p < .01. Conclusion: Further research should focus on predicting factors for self-development of registered nurses in health-promoting hospitals and program development to promote self-development of registered nurses in health-promoting hospitals.
