The nurse executive must be an effective decision-maker due to a rapidly changing healthcare market. Multiple models for decision-making have been developed within the industrial setting; however, a model unique to the challenges of the nurse executive is lacking. The Turner Decision-making Model (TDMM) was developed to assist the nurse executive in the decision-making process related to operational decisions in the hospital setting. The TDMM is guided by the systems approach and models from the literature. Four perspectives (employee, customer, organization, and unit) provide the framework for the TDMM. A descriptive correlational pilot study of 24 mid and executive level nurse administrators from six hospitals in the southeastern region of the United States was performed. Questionnaires were distributed to a convenience sample. Descriptive statistics and a correlation coefficient were used for data analysis. Findings indicate a strong linear correlation exists between each of the constructs of the model and decision complexity.
