Introduction: Nurses are an integral part of the health system and predicting their behavior in different situations is important for policymakers and managers of the health system. The present study was conducted to determine the efficiency of the theory of planned behavior in predicting the behavior of nurses in different situations.
Methods: The current narrative review study was conducted via searching in electronic databases including PubMed, Scopus, Science Direct, SID, Magiran and Iran Medex and by using the appropriate English and Persian keywords of Attitude, Theory of Planned Behavior, behavior, Behavioral Intention, Perceived Behavioral Control, Subjective Norms, Nursing Care over the period of 2000-2020.
Result: Theory of planned behavior has been successfully used for prediction and explanation of a variety of behaviors and health tips such as high-risk behaviors, women’s services, childbirth and breastfeeding, safety behaviors and oral health. According to the results of several studies, including studies in Korea and Taiwan, the above theory has been used to determine the causes of nurses 'behavior in patient care and the causes of nurses' activities in performing their duties.
Conclusions: Predicting people's behavior and planning based on these predictions on specific situations certainly has a significant role in the performance of the organization and controlling the situation. On the other hand, human behavior is influenced by various factors and its prediction requires different factors. The theory of planned behavior has a suitable model for predicting the behavior of individuals, including nurses, and this model can be used to plan and policy in specific situations in the field of nurses' performance.
