Table 7 Bivariate Associations and Linear Regression Analysis of Societal Factors/Barriers that influence and predict Role Transition

From: Factors that influence transition to advanced roles by RN to BSN nurses, in three selected hospitals of Central-Uganda

Variables r A (R2) β P
Barriers
 BSN learning received during training not applicable to our Clinical Setting −.336a .095 −2.760 .016
 Fewer BSN Nurses to Impact on the Change of Care .343a .099 1.622 .015
 Lack of interest by other Nursing Cadres in Learning what BSN nurses do .337a .096 1.641 .015
 Lack of Support from Colleagues (other BSN& Doctors) −374b .123 −1.799 .007
 Reluctance to take up more Responsibilities −.226 .032 −1.346 .110
