Research that investigates nursing work environment is necessary in that one of the solutions for global nursing shortage includes improving work environments for nurses. The Nursing Work Index is a commonly used instrument for measuring work environment among nurses. Various researchers have reported different factor models for this instrument. Yet, these factor models have rarely tested among Japanese hospital nurses. The aim of this study was to examine the fitness of the three factor models for the Nursing Work Index with the data collected from Japanese hospital nurses. Responses from 907 registered nurses working in 89 medical or surgical units of 18 hospitals in Tokyo and a Southern Prefecture of Japan were analyzed. The researcher used confirmatory factor analysis with the Weighed Least Squares method and compared the selected fit indices of 26-item one factor model, 15-item three factor model, and 29-item five factor model. The one factor model (Chi square = 3137.36, df = 299, NFI = .83, CFI = .84, RMSEA = .10), three factor model (Chi2 = 656.15, df = 87, NFI = .83, CFI = .85, RMSEA = .09), and five factor model (Chi square = 4013.03, df = 367, NFI = .85, CFI = .86, RMSEA = .11) produced approximately equal fit indices. None of these models showed close or reasonable error of estimations. The three models have been developed mainly using samples from North America. In addition to the nested structure of the data, cultural differences may have affected these results. Further research studies on the factor models may be needed among samples from various countries, in order to secure the validity of the Nursing Work Index internationally.
