Background& Amis: Self-efficacy as the main predictor of nurses’ behavior plays an important role in nurses’ professional behavior. However, the various aspects of this concept have not been taken into consideration. The present paper attempts to explore perceived self-efficacy of proficiency in pediatric nurses.

Materials & Methods: This study is part of a larger study on the caring self-efficacy concept that was conducted through content analysis and from a qualitative approach in 2014 in Iran. 27 nurses and pediatric clinical instructors participated in this research according to the purposive sampling employed in the study. Data was collected through semi-structured interviews. The collected data was analyzed using conventional content analysis method.

Results: The proficiency concept has two main categories “Technical Capabilities” including clinical skills, creativity in care, Atraumatic care, and “care based on professional knowledge” including Knowing That and Knowing How.

Conclusions: This paper introduces “proficiency” as one of the most aspects of caring self-efficacy in pediatric nurses. This finding can be used by nursing administrators and instructors to help perceived self-efficacy of nurses, especially in the area of pediatric caring and to enhance quality of pediatric caring.

Keywords: Proficiency, Self-Efficacy, Caring, Pediatric Nursing, Qualitative Research
