In this study, it is aimed to examine the effect of knowledge sharing, which has an important place for organizations, on empowerment. In this regard, firstly, two sub-dimensions of knowledge sharing as explicit and implicit knowledge sharing, and four sub-dimensions of empowerment as competence, autonomy (self-determination) and impact were examined by searching literature. İn the study, hypotheses were created to examine the effect of knowledge sharing on empowerment and nurses working in the health sector were selected as the study universe. 687 nurses working in Kütahya Dumlupınar University Evliya Çelebi Training and Research Hospital were selected as the sample population. A questionnaire was applied to 225 nurses selected by random sampling method from this hospital and data were obtained. As a result of the research, it was found that nurses' sharing knowledge positively contributed to their empowerment. It is found that this contribution is higher in the explicit knowledge that sub-dimension of knowledge sharing but in the implicit knowledge that sub-dimension of knowledge sharing.
