Abstract: 

The need for healthcare workers in hospitals is increasing worldwide, and since nurses represent the greatest proportion of health workers, it is important that nurses should be highly engaged in their jobs. The present study entitled "Personality traits as predictor of Work engagement among Nurses", was aimed to understand the relation of personality traits (openness, conscientiousness, extraversion, agreeableness and emotional stability) with work engagement among nurses. Also the main objective was to identify significant personality traits that predict work enagement among them. A quantitative and correlational research design was adopted and the settings included hospitals/nursing homes of J&K, India. The participants included the 300 nurses having at least two years of working experience and selected/engaged by the authorities on substantive basis. Standardised tools were used to collect the data, Pearson’s product moment correlation method and regression analysis was used to test the hypotheses. Results revealed that openness to experience (r =-0.126, P value 0.05); conscientiousness (r =.319, P value 0.01); extraversion (r =.328, P value 0.01) have significant positive correlation with work engagement as indicated by significant r values. However, agreeableness and emotional stability have insignificant correlation with work engagement. A regression analysis revealed that among the five personality traits only openness (β = .163, p = .009), conscientiousness (β = .171, p = .010) and extraversion (β= .243, p = .000) were found significant predictors/determinants of work engagement of nurses.
