The purpose of this study was to establish an identifiable group of variables that will serve as a baseline to evaluate changes in care delivery systems. The following question was addressed: What is the professional practice environment for nursing ? The study framework is based on structural contingency theory (SCT) that includes three inter-related concepts: context, structure, and effectiveness. A descriptive design was used. The following scales were administered to RNs: Work Quality Index; Nurse Organizational Climate Description Questionnaire; Nursing Job Satisfaction Scale; Perceived Effectiveness Survey: RN; Nurse Collaborative Practice Scale; and the Maslach Burnout Inventory. A convenience sample consisted of all RNs of a health care system. Descriptive statistics were completed on all demographic variables. Individual unit data were analyzed in addition to aggregate department level data. Post-hoc analysis was done to determine specific differences among units or between campuses. Data were analyzed at three levels: unit, department, and hospital campus. Both statistically significant differences and differences that were considered clinically (but not statistically) significant were delineated.
