Durbin-Watson: 1.96.

Dummy variables: Hospital size (<500 beds=1, others=0), Length of career (≤7=1, >7=0).

Sobel test: z=3.58***.

In step 1, social support was used as a dependent variable and controlled variables such as hospital size and length of career, and workplace violence experience were all analyzed as independent variables.

In step 2, depression was used as a dependent variable and controlled variables such as hospital size and length of career, and workplace violence experience were all analyzed as independent variables.
