Comparison between Highly-Talented and Low- Talented Nurses on their Characteristics and Quality of Nursing Care

Purpose: This study aims to compare between highly-talented and low-talented nurses in regard to the quality of nursing care they provide as perceived by the nurses themselves.

Methods: A descriptive comparative design was used to recruit all the available Kuwaiti nurses (N=72 nurses) from the 6 medical regions in Kuwait. Nurses’ talent was measured by using the self-assessment Nurse Competence Scale, the Gardner Career Commitment Scale, and the Nurses’ Contribution Scale. The quality of care was measured by the Nurses’ Assessment of Quality Scale.

Results: 43 (59.7%) nurses were highly-talented. The findings revealed that there were no significant differences between the low-talented and the highly-talented nurses in terms of their characteristics. However, the quality of nursing care was better among the group of highly-talented nurses.

Conclusion: One way to assess talent in nursing is by assessing the competence, the commitment, and the contribution of the nurses.
