Background: Entrepreneurship is a process in which a person with a new idea and thought offers a new product and service to market by mobilizing all resources through building businesses by accepting financial, social and economic risks. Given the existing bases in the field of health, the present study was conducted with an aim to determine the entrepreneurial talent in nursing students at universities of Golestan province.
Methods: The present cross-sectional study was conducted on 250 postgraduate nursing students at universities of Golestan province during the academic year of 2018-2019, and they were included in the study using the simple random method. The data were gathered using a 95-item Kordenaeej entrepreneurship questionnaire with eight subscale including need for achievement, Internal locus of control, Moderate risk-taking propensity, Ambiguity tolerance, thought flow, daydreaming, operation oriented, and challenge seeking. The final score of entrepreneurial talent was categorized as very weak (95-264), weak (265-283), strong (284-303), and very strong (304-380). Data were analyzed in SPSS16 using descriptive statistics, independent and paired t-tests, and chi-square test. Significance level was considered less than 0.05.
Results: The studentschr('39') mean age was 20.95±2.37. Samples were strong or very strong only in challenge seeking and thought flow, and were weak or very weak in other features. In the entrepreneurial talent, 47.7% were very weak, 29.4% were weak, 17.4% were strong and only 5.5% were very strong. There were statistical significant relationships between studentschr('39') gender and entrepreneurial talent (P=0.002) as well as studentschr('39') place of residence and entrepreneurial talent (P=0.039).
Conclusion: Results of the present study indicated that nursing students at universities of Golestan province were weak in entrepreneurial talent. The studentschr('39') weakness of entrepreneurial talent indicated that it was necessary to pay attention to the entrepreneurial talent and strengthen the above characteristics in nursing students using the necessary interventions and proper planning.
