Abstract:

Objectives: To examine the relationships between empathy and self-awareness among nursing interns.
Methods: This is a descriptive-correlational study that was carried out on 41 nurse interns at the Asir Hospital in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia's inpatient departments, where nurse interns are educated, using a basic random technique. Demographic and educational factors, the Kiersma-Chen Empathy Scale, and the Self-Consciousness Scale-Revised-were used to collect data. SPSS was used to examine the data.
Results: The majority of nursing interns, 75.6% and 82.9%, respectively, had a moderate level of empathy and self-awareness, according to the data. 
Conclusion and recommendations: The study's findings indicate that there is no statistically significant relationship between self-awareness and empathy. The study's conclusions demonstrate the necessity of educational initiatives that foster empathy and self-awareness in order to improve patient-centered care and provide high-quality treatment.
