Veninda Ayu Utami, Ratno Purnomo, Ade Irma Anggraeni


This research was conducted to analyze the effect of proactive personality and proactive behavior on nurses in the hospital either directly or through role breadth self-efficacy mediating variables so that a conceptual and empirical framework for proactive behavior can be found at the Regional General Hospital Prof. Dr. Margono Soekarjo Purwokerto. This research is quantitative descriptive. The empirical hypothesis was tested using SmartPLS. Testing this hypothesis was carried out using empirical data obtained from the results of the answers to the questionnaire from 60 nurses. The results of the study show that proactive personality and role breadth self-efficacy influence proactive behavior. The results of this research are expected to enhance the understanding of proactive behavior, thus providing considerations for selecting approaches to foster proactive behavior within the organization and implementing appropriate policies. Keywords: proactive behavior, proactive personality, role breadth self-efficacy.
