[Research Presentation] The nursing work environment impacts nurses and patients (Aiken, Clarke, Sloane, Sochalski & Siber, 2002; Larrabee, Ostrow, Withrow, Janney, Hobbs & Burant, 2004; Vahey & Aiken, Sloane, Clarke, Vargus, 2004). áUnhealthy nursing work environments have been demonstrated to contribute to nursing turnover. Nursing turnover destabilizes the nursing workforce and coupled with the nursing shortage, leads to short-staffing and use of contract labor, both which have been associated with threats to patientÆs safety (Aiken et al, 2002) and patientÆs satisfaction with their health care (Larrabee et al, 2004; Vahey et al, 2004). This, in turn, yields fiscal ramifications for organizations (Jones, 2004).áThe purpose of this study was to begin to understand how the nursing work environment influences nursing and patient outcomes at an academic medical center in Southern California. A descriptive, prospective, correlational non-experimental design was designed to explore the relationships between the nursing work environment, nurseÆs intention to leave their current nursing position and nurseÆs experience of moral distress. A convenience non-probability sample was recruited between January 2006 and March 2006 from inpatient nursing units following IRB approval. The research instruments and the demographic tool were computerized beginning with an introductory page including the informed consent statement and the ability to decline or accept the terms of the. Informed consent was documented as the participant accepted the terms of the study and completed the computerized surveys.á Data analysis is currently underway and will be completed by February 2007.á The findings will provide an understanding of the most salient concerns of the nursing workforce and provide a focused direction for the development of interventions to foster movement towards a healthy work environment.
