In order to provide appropriate practical training for quality nursing care, it is necessary to evaluate nursing performance competencies in terms of clinical careers. Using convenience sampling, this cross-sectional study aimed to identify the nursing performance competencies and practical education needs of operating room nurses by evaluating nurses’ clinical careers. The participants in this study were 182 nurses working in the operating rooms of four general hospitals in Seoul, Korea. Data came from self-report questionnaires regarding nursing performance competencies and practical education needs. The results showed that participants’ nursing performance competencies and practical education needs differed significantly across clinical career groups. Further, participants’ nursing performance competencies were negatively correlated with practical education needs in terms of clinical career. In order to develop an effective and continuous practical education program for operating nurses, various education programs that reflect nursing performance competencies and practical education needs for particular stages of clinical careers are necessary.
