Purpose: This study will explore the structural relationships of nurses' perceptions of the working environment, general job satisfaction, and their demographic characteristic in a pediatric hospital in preparation for the American Nurses Association Magnet Reorganization application.

Theoretical Framework: Job satisfaction model by H. K. S. Laschinger (2003)

Subjects: The study sample consists of 816 nurses ages 21 to 68 (M = 37.7, SD = 10), who have been employed by the hospital for over 6 months, and work at least 16 hours per week.

Methods: The nurses' perceptions of the working environment were assessed by a one-month online survey of revised Nursing Work Index (NWI-R) administrated at a Midwest pediatric medical center in 2005. The psychometric properties of NWI-R will be studied by exploratory factor analysis and confirmatory factor analysis based on 816 responses. A path diagram of structural relationships among latent factors extracted from NWI-R, nurses' total job satisfaction and demographic characteristics (Including age, hours worked, length of employment in unit/hospital, education and title) will be illustrated.

Results: Preliminary analyses reveal new latent factors which are different from the study by Aiken and Patrician (2000). Further analysis is in progress.

Conclusions: Analyses from this study will yield further knowledge into the validity and reliability of the NWI-R. A revised latent factor structure of the Nursing Work Index (NWI-R) may be suggested. Findings will also give insight into the theoretical relationship between nurse demographics and perception of work environment on nurse job satisfaction. [Poster Presentation]
