This problem certainly affects the nurses' self-efficacy in caring for Covid-19 patients. Therefore, it is necessary to have support from nurse managers and colleagues to overcome this problem. This study aims to identify the correlation between nurse managers and peer support with nurses' self-efficacy in caring for Covid-19 patients in hospitals</em></p> <p><strong><em>Method</em></strong><strong><em>s</em></strong><strong>:</strong> <em>This study uses a quantitative descriptive method with a cross-sectional approach. The number of samples was 167 nurses from the Covid-19 referral hospital in Cirebon with the accidental sampling technique. Data were analyzed using the Chi-square test and multiple logistic regression tests.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Results:</em></strong> <em>The results showed that there was a correlation between peer support and nurses' self-efficacy (p &lt;0.001), and there was not a correlation between nurse manager support and nurses' efficacy in caring for Covid-19 patients in hospitals (p = 0.229). The most influential factors on nurses' self-efficacy were peer support (OR: 3.207) and gender (OR: 2.229)</em><em>.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Conclusion: </em></strong><em>Peer support was related to increasing the nurse's efficacy in caring for Covid-19 in the hospital. The recommendation is the hospitals need to increase support for nurses by providing motivation, information, and counselling for individuals who need it. Therefore the emotional burden of nurses can be reduced, and self-efficacy becomes better in doing the job.</em></p> Dadan Bardah Setyowati Setyowati Tuti Afriani Hanny Handiyani Sarvita Dewi Copyright (c) 2022 (JKG) Jurnal Keperawatan Global 2022-08-10 2022-08-10 19 28 10.37341/jkg.v0i0.399 Fatigue Level Of Chronic Kidney Failure Patients After Undergoing Hemodialysis Therapy https://jurnalkeperawatanglobal.com/index.php/jkg/article/view/498 <p><strong><em>Background: </em></strong><em>Chronic kidney failure is a terminal illness where the disease cannot be cured, so it requires hemodialysis therapy. Life changes in post-HD patients cause various complications that make patients feel uncomfortable, have insomnia, and feel dizzy and tired.

The previous studies in Indonesia focus on providing education as a direct intervention to patients. This study aimed to determine the educational needs of postpartum mothers from the nurses' point of view.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Method</em></strong><strong><em>s</em></strong><strong><em>:</em></strong> <em>This study was a qualitative study conducted from April to July 2021 in a referral hospital in Central Java, Indonesia. Data were collected through focus group discussions, in-depth interviews, and observations. The participant of this study were seven nurses in the postpartum ward. The collected data were analyzed </em><em>using a tabulated theme conducted through the thematic analysis approach.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Results:</em></strong> <em>All the participants were females. </em><em>Three major themes were generated in this study: reasons for the need for continuous postpartum education, obstacles to implementing postpartum education, and expectations of future follow-up care. The subthemes for the first theme are patients readmitted to the hospital, excessive educational topics, short admission time, and high-risk postpartum mothers. While the subthemes for the second theme are time constraints, limited educational media, and environmental and cultural influences, and the subthemes for the third theme are continuous monitoring and accessibility of educational media.</em></p> <p><strong><em>Conclusion: </em></strong><em>The study has provided new insights regarding the continuity of postpartum education and the obstacles nurses face and has implications for developing a system of continuity of care for postpartum patients, especially for high-risk patients.</em></p> Lutfatul Latifah Nina Setiawati Aprilia Kartikasari Hari Siswantoro Copyright (c) 2022 (JKG) Jurnal Keperawatan Global 2022-08-12 2022-08-12 43 55 10.37341/jkg.v0i0.501 Behavioral Changes In Elderly Hypertension In Covid-19 Prevention https://jurnalkeperawatanglobal.com/index.php/jkg/article/view/426 <p><strong><em>Background: </em></strong><em>COVID-19</em><em> is a disease that can infect everyone, especially vulnerable groups such as the elderly with hypertension. Various educational institutions have carried out COVID-19 transmission, but they are still one-way and not very effective in suppressing COVID-19 spread. Therefore, in this study, health education will be conducted using the Focus Group Discussion (FGD) method so that this study aims to determine the effect of health education with the focus group discussion method on the behavior of the elderly with hypertension in preventing COVID-19.</em></p> <p><em><strong>Methods:</strong></em><em> This study used a quasi-experimental design with 56 respondents for two groups (intervention group = 28 and control group = 28). Multistage cluster sampling was taking samples. The research instrument was a previously tested knowledge, attitude, and skills questionnaire for validity and reliability. The study was conducted at the Muara Enim Health Center. The data collected was processed using SPSS version 25.0 and analyzed by univariate (frequency and percentage) and bivariate (paired t-test and independent t-test).</em></p> <p><em><strong>Results:</strong></em><em> The results of this study indicate an effect of health education using the FGD method on the behavior of the elderly with hypertension in preventing COVID-19 (p = 0.01).</em></p> <p><em><strong>Conclusion: </strong>Health education with the FGD method can improve the behavior of the elderly with hypertension.</em> <em>For further research, it is necessary to involve the family as a support system in implementing health education with the FGD method using the Zoom application to increase the aggregate knowledge of the elderly in the community.</em></p> Siti Badriah Putri Mayang Sari Lily Herlinah Athanasia Budi Astuti Copyright (c) 2022 (JKG) Jurnal Keperawatan Global 2022-09-13 2022-09-13 56 63 10.37341/jkg.v0i0.426 Impact Of Nutsi-Smartphone Application On Nutritional Knowledge Among Breastfeeding Mothers: A Quasy-Experimental Study https://jurnalkeperawatanglobal.com/index.php/jkg/article/view/401 <p><strong><em>Background:</em></strong> <em>Nutrition knowledge among breastfeeding mothers is a key factor in good nutrition status. Some breastfeeding mothers in Indonesia suffer from inadequate nutrition status, which may affect exclusive breastfeeding practice. However, few breastfeeding women have adequate nutritional knowledge.
