    Introduction: Nurses are obligated to respond
    competently in the event of cardiac arrest. Nurses could
    be hesitant to intervene due to low self-efficacy in their
    ability to manage cardiac arrest patients.

    Objective: The objective of this study was to
    determine the level of nurses' perceived self-efficacy
    in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) at a private
    hospital in Kuala Lumpur.

    Method: A cross-sectional descriptive study was
    conducted with 112 respondents who fulfilled the
    inclusion criteria. A 19 item questionnaire on
    Resuscitation Self-Efficacy Scale (RSES) was adapted
    and scored using a 5-point Likert scale.

    Results: The total mean score and standard deviation
    of perceived self-efficacy score in resuscitation was (M
    = 77.68; SD ± 11.77) which indicated a high degree
    of self-efficacy among nurses. There were significant
    differences between respondents’ age groups with (t
    = -2.520; p = 0.013), unit of working (t = -4.086; p =
    0.001), real experiences in resuscitation (t = 2.532; p =
    0.013), and the number of participations in resuscitation
    (t=-6.668; p=0.001) and nurses perceived self-efficacy
    in CPR. There were also significant differences between
    respondents' years of working experience with (F
    = 7.286; p =0.001) and types of last resuscitation
    training (F= 7.088; p = 0.001). However, there was no
    significant difference between the nurses' time of their
    last resuscitation training (F = 1.225; p = 0.298) and the
    nurses perceived self-efficacy in CPR.

    Conclusion: In conclusion, nurses were deemed to possess
    a high sense of self-efficacy in CPR. This study concluded
    that nurses' age groups, years of working experience,
    unit of working, real experiences in resuscitation and
    the number of participations in resuscitation and types
    of last resuscitation training are factors contributing
    towards self-efficacy in CPR performances. However, the
    time of last resuscitation training reported no significant
    difference towards nurses' perceived self-efficacy in
    CPR. Therefore, repetitive CPR and ACLS certification
    training are pivotal in order to strengthen nurse’s self-efficacy in resuscitation and team collaboration through
    training in this private hospital.
