Background: Nurses are critical to the delivery of high-quality, efficient care. Evi­dences from previous studies show that hospital nurses and staff, supported by leadership, can be actively involved in improving both the quality and the effici­en­cy of hospital care. This study aimed to examine determinants of job perfor­man­ce among nurses at PKU Muhammadiyah Hospital, Yogyakarta.

Subjects and Method: A cross-sectional study was conducted at PKU Muhammadiyah Hospital, Yogyakarta, from April to June 2018. A sample of 203 nur­ses was selected for this study by simple random sampling. The dependent vari­able was job performance. The independence variables were motivation, skill, te­­nure, and motivation. The data were collected by questionnaire and analyzed by a multiple logistic regression.

Results: Nurse job performance increased with skill (OR= 5.70; 95% CI= 0.93 to 3.72; p<0.001), tenure (OR= 2.04; 95% CI= 1.07 to 3.88; p= 0.030), and motivati­on (OR= 1.87; 95% CI= 0.93 to 3.72; p= 0.079).

Conclusion: Nurse job performance increases with skill, tenure, and motivation.

Keywords: job performance, nurse, tenure, motivation, skill
