Abstract
This study aims to examine the effect of Psychological Capital (PsyCap) on nurseís positive
attitudes and work behaviours. Participants were nurses recruited from six different cities located in eastern part
of Indonesia. Data were collected using a three-wave data collection technique. The final data collection stage
documented a three-wave data set from 637 participants. Most participants were women (529, 90.6%), held
bachelor degree (49.3%), the average of age was 30.15 (SD= 6.69), and the average of tenure was 7.27 (SD= 6.14).
The results showed that after controlling the impact of age, tenure, and education, PsyCap had positive impact on
organizational commitment (ő≤= 0.25, p<0.001), job satisfaction (ő≤= 9.72, p<0.01), work-engagement (ő≤= 0.23,
p<0.001), and Organizational Citizenship Behavior (ő≤= 0.39, p<0.001). These findings indicated that PsyCap
consistently impacted positive work attitudes and behaviours among nurses in Indonesia.

Key words: PsyCap, Positive, Work-Engagement, Commitment, Satisfaction, OCB, and Nurse
