Background Nursing organization is a united structure of nursing units. A nursing unit is a small group consisted of 10-20. The personal characteristics and job characteristics affect individual nurse's behavior. Their behaviors affect group dynamics, organizational behavior characteristics, and consequently the group outcome of a nursing unit. Therefore, organizational effectiveness in a nursing unit consists of structure, process and outcome of group, and the overall structural aspects influence outcome through process of group. The purpose of this study was to construct the Organizational Effectiveness Model that explains and predicts the effectiveness of a nursing unit from the organizational-behavioral perspective. This study aimed to develop a comprehensive model based on the literature and previous research that often simply measured factors that influence organizational effectiveness. Relationships among factors and roles of mediating factors were specifically clarified in this study. Research in process The subjects of this study consist of two groups: 455 nurses and 538 patients. Staff nurses who were employed in four university hospitals located in Seoul, Pusan and Kyungki and adult patients who were admitted in 31 general wards except the intensive care units and psychiatric units of hospitals participated in this study. Data were collected from October 4th to October 14th in 2000 by self-report questionnaire. Data were analyzed by the Lisral 8.12(a) program for the test of the fitness of hypothetical model. With the findings from this study, duration of employment and the locus of control among the personal characteristics of the nurses and job enrichment among the characteristics of nursing job were direct or indirect predictors of the outcome of nursing units. Group dynamics and the characteristics of organizational behavior were mediating variables for the organizational effectiveness of the nursing units, and affect directly and indirectly on the individual outcome and group outcome to the great extends.
