ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of empowerment in nurses through a systematic literature review and meta-analysis. 23 studies were collected through a systematic process of using several databases such as NDSL, DBPIA, and KISS. Keywords included ‘nurse’, ‘empowerment’, and ‘correlation’ and the reviewed articles were published from 2002 to 2017. In order to estimate the effect size of correlation between empowerment, 3 variables (job satisfaction, organizational commitment, and nursing performance) were considered. Using the R program, meta-analysis was calculated by using random effects model, and effect sizes on three types were estimated. As the result, it was found, first, the effect size of correlation between job satisfaction and empowerment is .50. Second, the effect size of correlation between organizational commitment and empowerment is .45. Third, for the nursing performance and empowerment relationship, the effect of correlation is 0.50. Also, Egger’s regression test, fail-safe N, trim-and-fill test, and funnel plot were showed to evaluate the results. These results highlights the need for appropriate policies of the relationship between empowerment and job satisfaction, organizational commitment and nursing performance in nurses.
