Abstract :

Researchers have used self-efficacy to investigate online learning, physical therapist, diabetes type 2, work engagement, teacher education, exercise behavior, chemotherapy treatment, Alzheimer disease, counseling, clinical reasoning and online shopping. Instrumentation used was self-efficacy, compassion scale and self-compassion scale. Pommierâ??s (2011) scale measures compassion toward others. Subscales are kindness, judgment, common humanity, isolation, mindfulness and disengagement. Neffâ??s (2003) scale measures compassion toward self. Subscales are self-kindness, self-judgment, common humanity, isolation, mindfulness and over-identified. Participants (N=69) in this educational intervention were BSN junior students. The selfefficacy scale was used to create two groups (e.g., high self-efficacy scores, moderate-low self-efficacy scores). Hypothesis 1: Kindness, common humanity and mindfulness subscales from Pommierâ??s compassion towards others questionnaire would have different mean scores for the two self-efficacy groups. Hypothesis 2: The common humanity, mindfulness and overidentified subscales from Neffâ??s compassion towards self-questionnaire would have different mean scores for the two selfefficacy groups. Independent t-test analyses (SPSS #25) were significant for Pommierâ??s subscales (kindness, p=0.007; common humanity, p=0.001; mindfulness, p=0.001) and for Neffâ??s subscales (common humanity, p=0.045; mindfulness, p=0.001; overidentified, p=0.019). Barring over-identified significant finding, BSN students with high scores on SE had high mean scores on the remaining five subscales.
