 Purpose: To clarify the relationship between realizing self worth, nursing work empowerment and personal accomplishment of mid-career nurses working in an acute care hospital setting.

 Method: A questionnaire was completed by 533 mid-career nurses working in an acute care hospital setting. The concept of realizing self worth was identified by Gregg (2005). Here, we have developed a scale for realizing self worth that was composed of seven items. The reliability and construct validity of this scale were tested by confirmatory factor analysis, and the relationship between realizing self worth, nursing work empowerment and personal accomplishment was investigated using structural equation modeling.

 Results: The questionnaire was returned by a total of 270 nurses, with 269 valid responses (valid response rate: 50.5%). Structural equation modeling (n=259) showed that the direct effect of nursing work empowerment on personal accomplishment was .10, and that of the indirect effect through realizing self worth was .21.

 Conclusion: These results suggest that the indirect effect through realizing self worth was greater than that of the direct effect. Realizing self worth is therefore important for the implementation of nursing work empowerment in an acute care hospital setting.
