It empowers individuals to comprehend life's purpose, gain a broader perspective, understand and empathize with others, take personal responsibilities and duties, foster independence, inspire, tackle challenges and obstacles, and creatively solve problems adhering to morality and ethics. This enables individuals to achieve success, find happiness in life, and live in harmonious coexistence. Spiritual intelligence is therefore important for nurses, who have responsibility to take care for patients, families, and other service users, as well as to work collaboratively within healthcare teams. Its development can enhance nursing performance, benefiting patients and their families, as well as promoting satisfaction in teamwork. To nurture spiritual intelligence, nurses can engage individually or participate in group settings, following a structured process. This process involves self-awareness, a commitment to personal growth, reevaluating on life's purpose, exploring barriers and solutions, seeking methods and adhering to achieve life goals, and remaining open to diverse paths towards achieving these goals.</em></p> <p><em>This article remarks the importance of spiritual intelligence for effective nursing performance and methods for spiritual intelligence development which can be applied as the guideline to enhance the growth of spiritual intelligence for nurses.</em></p> ศศิลักษณ์ ศรีสุทราภรณ์ ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2024-03-17 2024-03-17 6 1 e3319 e3319 Study of Relationship Between Self-efficacy, Adaptation, and Attitude towards Nursing Profession among Nursing Students https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/3297 <p><em>This research aimed to investigate the levels and relationships between self-efficacy, adaptation, and attitude towards the nursing profession among year 2, 3 and 4 nursing students, totaling 213 individuals. The research instrument consisted of a questionnaire comprising four sections—personal information, self-efficacy, adaptation, and attitude towards the nursing profession. Data were collected from July to August 2023. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and Pearson product moment correlation. The findings showed that self-efficacy, emotional and relational adaptation, and attitude towards the nursing profession were at a high level. Functional role and social adaptation were at a moderate level.&nbsp; Self-efficacy, adaptation regarding functional role, social, emotion, and interpersonal relationships revealed statistically significant positive correlation with attitude towards nursing profession (r = .470, .286, .452, .397, and .457, respectively). These findings provide directions for the development of teaching and learning management to enhance students’ self-efficacy and adaptation through both theoretical and practical teaching and learning process, aiming to cultivate positive attitude towards the nursing profession.</em></p> ญาธิดา วุฒิศาสตร์กุล ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2024-03-14 2024-03-14 6 1 e3297 e3297 Predicting Factors of Health Promoting Behaviors of University Students with Obesity https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/3285 <p><em>This predictive research aimed to investigate health promoting behaviors and predictive factors of health promoting behaviors among students with obesity. Pender’s health promotion model was employed as a conceptual framework. A total of 126 students was randomly selected from students with obesity who received general medical services at the university clinic. Data were collected using personal data information sheet, and questionnaires regarding health promoting behavior, perceived benefits, perceived barriers, perceived self-efficacy, and social support in the practice of the health promotion behaviors. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, Pearson product moment correlation, and stepwise multiple regression. </em></p> <p><em>The findings revealed that both overall and each aspect of health promoting behaviors including eating behaviors, physical activities, and stress management were at low level. There was a significantly moderate positive correlation between health promoting behaviors and self-efficacy (r = .494, p = 000), and low-level negative correlation with perceived barriers (r = -.351, p = .000). Together, perceived self-efficacy and perceived barriers were able to predict health promoting behaviors at 33.90 %. Campaign Projects is suggested to motivate students to engage in the health promoting behaviors including both physical and mental health.</em></p> อัญชนา สุวรรณชาติ อำภาพร นามวงศ์พรหม น้ำอ้อย ภักดีวงศ์ ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2024-04-14 2024-04-14 6 1 e3285 e3285 Nursing Students’ Needs, Acquisition, and Satisfaction towards E-Learning Management, Rangsit University https://rsujournals.rsu.ac.th/index.php/ajnh/article/view/2806 <p><em>&nbsp;This descriptive correlational study aimed to investigate e-learning management including needs, acquisition, and satisfaction; and explore the relationship among needs, acquisition, and satisfaction of e-learning management. The 289 purposive samples comprised the 2<sup>nd</sup> to 4<sup>th</sup> year nursing students who enrolled in summer semester, academic year 2020. Data were collected by a questionnaire assessing needs, acquisition, and satisfaction of e-learning management across six domains, with a content validity index of .85 Cronbach's alpha and KR-20 coefficients exceeding .70.

Sample were 40 breast cancer patients receiving chemotherapy. Twenty patients in the experiment group were provided with a self-care promoting program along with ginger capsule supplementation, and 20 patients in the control group received usual care. Instruments for data collection were personal, disease- and treatment-related information, the Multinational Association of Supportive Care in Cancer (MASCC) Nausea and Vomiting Scale and Self-Care Ability Scale, which the content validity index was 1.0. Data collection was carried out over two consecutive cycles of chemotherapy</em> <em>from February to November 2022. Data was analyzed using descriptive statistics, Chi-square test, Fisher’s exact test, independent t-test, and Mann-Whitney U test.</em></p> <p><em>The results indicated an increase in the self-care ability score among participants in the experiment group as compared to the control group (p&lt;.001). Additionally, during the two consecutive chemotherapy cycles, the experiment group exhibited a reduced incidence rate and milder severity of nausea on the second to forth day following chemotherapy when compared to the control group (p&lt;.05). However, there was no distinction observed in the vomiting occurrence rate and the frequency of vomiting on each day following chemotherapy between the experiment and control group (p&gt;.05). In conclusion, the utilization of a self-care promoting program combined with oral ginger capsule demonstrated the capacity to augment self-care abilities and alleviate chemotherapy-induced nausea in breast cancer patients.</em></p> นันทนัช ภาณุศรี รัชนี นามจันทรา ขนิตฐา หาญประสิทธิ์คำ ##submission.copyrightStatement## http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0 2024-04-24 2024-04-24 6 1 e3333 e3333
