ABSTRACT

This study aimed to examine the mediating effect of self-esteem on the relationship between clinical practice powerlessness and career identity among dental hygiene students with clinical practice experience in the IoT. A questionnaire was conducted on 172 dental hygiene students in a university located in Chungcheong area. For data analysis, Pearson’s correlation analysis was conducted to exam the relationships between clinical practice powerlessness, self-esteem, and career identity. Baron & Kenny’s three-step mediation analysis was used to investigate the mediating effect of self-esteem in the relationship between clinical practice powerlessness and career identity. The results of this study showed that the clinical practice powerlessness showed significant negative correlations with both self-esteem and career identity, and self-esteem showed a positive correlation with career identity. Partial mediating effects of self-esteem were found between clinical practice powerlessness and career identity. Thus, since self-esteem mediates the relationship between clinical practice powerlessness and career identity, it’s essential to implement online-based programs aimed at increasing self-esteem among dental hygiene students before they participate in clinical practice
