Purpose: The purpose of this study is to investigate the effect of
both nurse/physician communication and the practice environment on nursing
job satisfaction. Considerable research in the outcome of nursing job
satisfaction has not yielded solutions to the ongoing problem of nursing
dissatisfaction. Processes that link organizational structures, such as
the practice environment, to nurse outcomes are poorly understood. The
practice environment has been shown to have a stronger relationship to job
satisfaction than personal variables such as age, experience, and length
of tenure in the organization, suggesting a link between the work
environment and job satisfaction. Nurse-physician communication, as a
nursing process, has also been shown to contribute to nursing job
satisfaction. Theoretical/Conceptual Framework: The Nursing Role
Effectiveness Model (NREM) was developed as a way of explaining how
nursesÆ roles (processes), as they are practiced in complex healthcare
systems, could contribute to patient outcomes such as patient safety, and
nurse outcomes such as job satisfaction The NREM maintains that
organizational structural variables influence nursing processes and
outcome variables. Nursing processes, in turn, further influence outcome
variables on their own. Subjects: A random sample of 500 acute care nurses
was drawn from a list provided by the Michigan Nurses Association. IRB
approval has been given. Method: A non-experimental survey design is being
used. Reliable and valid instruments include measures of the practice
environment (Conditions for Work Effectiveness Questionnaire and the
Practice Environment Scale), communication (ICU Nurse-Physician
Questionnaire) and job satisfaction (the Index of Work Satisfaction and a
global satisfaction score). Path analysis will be used to test
simultaneously direct and indirect hypothesized relationships, reflecting
the complex interaction of variables that predict job satisfaction.
Results should shed more light on the determinants of nursing job
satisfaction, and lead to strategies to develop satisfied nurses in the
hospital environment.
