[Research Presentation] Background: Research, based on the concepts of Rosabeth Moss Kanter'sáStructural Theory, has shown that nurses have less formal and informal power. One of the reasons given isáhierarchical organizational structure. Nurses are not involved enough in management decision making and they feeláájob dissatisfaction, stress and áburnout. A study in Slovenia in 2005 found that nurses have fewer opportunities for professional growth, perform various tasks, and have less access to information,ásupport, and resources. They have fewer possibilities to make decisions about the nursing care system and have less collaboration with doctors in team. The traditional organizational structure is perceived as the threat for performingá high quality of patient care and nurses' satisfaction. Research Question: How do nurses perceive organizational empowermentá structures? Methods: A descriptive survey design was used for the 2006 study. Surveys were distributed in a classroom setting to a convenience sample of 40 part time students studying in a modifiedáthree years University College Nursing program. Participants completed the Conditions of Work Effectiveness Questionnaire II - CWEO II which consists of 19 items and six components of structural empowerment describedáby Kanter: opportunity, information, support, resources, formal power, and informal power; and 2 items from the global empowerment scale which is usedá for constructá validation purposes.á Items are ranged from1-5 Likert scale. Questionnaire is used by permission of the author, Heather K. Spence Laschinger, ( 2006).áResults: Dataáare in the phase of statistical analysis. Descriptive statistics will be used to compute all scales and subscales and demographic variables. Conclusion: Results of theá research study will áhave implications for nurse managers and hospital directors in creating more effective and efficient heath care organizations and in implementing organizational changes.
