Core competence is important for high-risk and high-demand operating room nurses, while there are few reports on the core competence of operating room nurses and its influencing factors. This study was to investigate the core competence of nurses in operating room and to explore the effect of fixed surgery specialty on their core competence. The Competency Inventory for Registered Nurses scale, which includes 7 dimensions consisting of a total of 58 items, including ethics/legal practice, professional development ability, leadership ability, clinical nursing ability, interpersonal relationship ability, education/counseling ability and critical thinking/scientific research ability, was used to evaluate the core competence of nurses. Based on the core competence scale of registered nurses, the specific items of core competence of nurses in 5 operating rooms were added to investigate 408 operating room nurses in 8 Grade 3A hospitals in Guangzhou. The total average score of core competence of nurses in operating room was (2.80±0.54). The scores of core competence of nurses in fixed surgery specialty were higher than that in unfixed surgery specialty group (P<0.05). Fixed in a particular surgery specialty is beneficial to improve the core competence of nurses in operating room and improve the quality and efficiency of surgical nursing cooperation.
