Explanatory mechanisms to trigger proactive behaviors through employees’ workplace curiosity have rarely been discussed. Therefore, this study extended the job demand resource (JDR) model by examining the psychological relationship between workplace curiosity dimensions and job crafting under the mediating role of occupation self-efficacy. Data was collected through adopted and adapted questionnaires in three-time lags from 443 nurses serving in reputed public sector hospitals of Pakistan. The data were analyzed via Smart-PLS using the structured equation modeling (SEM) technique. The results showed that major dimensions of workplace curiosity affect job crafting under the partial mediation of occupational self-efficacy. Thus, certain psychological and contextual recommendations are provided to the targeted sector in particular and other sectors in general.
