Over the past decade, a shortage of registered nurses (RNs) has been one of the most critical concerns for health care institutions, particularly hospitals (Spetz and Given 2003; Buerhaus, Auerbach, and Staiger 2009). The Bureau of Health Professions of the Health Resources and Services Administration estimated that the RN shortage would grow from 6 percent in 2002 to 20 percent by 2020 (DHHS 2002). Researchers proposed that high turnover and intent of RNs to leave the profession would further w...

Few researchers have examined how the components of the Practice Environment Scale of the Nursing Work Index (PES-NWI) relate to nurses' well-being at multiple organizational levels. The objective of the study was to perform a multilevel assessment of the relationships of the PES-NWI subscales with three nurse outcomes: job satisfaction, emotional exhaustion, and turnover intentions. Additionally, we tested the multilevel factor structure of the PES-NWI. In a sample of 699 full-time registered n...

Background General self-efficacy is considered one of the most influential parameters affecting the quality of clinical practice and nurses’ perceived professional benefits (NPPB). Perceived organizational support (POS) is regarded as being central in understanding job-related attitudes, and it is important to enhance POS for nurses to maintain their current employment. NPPB can further reduce nurses’ job burnout and turn-over intention. Many studies have explored the relationships among general...

Abstract Care workers’ work environment is known to be associated with patient and nurse outcomes. To our knowledge no questionnaire is available for assessing this environment for all care workers in the Norwegian nursing-home setting. This paper describes the development, adaptation and assessment of such a questionnaire: the extended Norwegian version of the Brisbane Practice Environment Measure for Nursing Homes (B-PEM-NH). This version was developed and assessed using semistructured intervi...
