Subjects were 181 new graduate nurses immediately after graduation. in two general hospitals in C city and K city. Data were collected by self-report questionnaires from February 27 to March 30, 2017. Data were analyzed by descriptive statistics, Independent t-test, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation and Multiple regression and Sobel test to test the significance of a mediation effect using SPSS 23 software. Emotional intelligence were significantly positive correlations with critical thinking disposition(r=.62, p<.001) and clinical competence(r=.60, p<.001) in new graduate nurses immediately after graduation. Emotional intelligence partially mediated the relationship between critical thinking disposition and clinical competence which showed significance in Sobel's test(Z=3.88, p<.001). Theses results indicated that in order to improve the clinical competence of new nurse, it is necessary to develop and test the program for improving not only on the critical thinking disposition but also on the emotional intelligence.
