Abstract:
The New Brunswick health care system has undergone restructuring three times within the last fifteen years. One of the recent changes has focused on enabling health care personnel to work to their full scope of practice. This has had a profound impact on nurses and auxiliary nursing personnel as each have had to adjust to new roles. Nurses have taken on more of a coordinating role while auxiliary health care workers have taken on many traditional nursing tasks. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of work reorganization on job satisfaction among nursing personnel. Self-determination theory was used to guide the study. A survey questionnaire was used with nursing personnel (n=418) in a regional health authority in southern New Brunswick before and after the changes took place. Survey results prior to role change indicate that several variables are highly predictive of job satisfaction among nursing personnel, such as role clarity, the absence of role conflict, the ability to enjoy work and perceived competence in relation to skills. Preliminary results from the second survey, after the role changes have taken place, will be compared. Study results are discussed in light of the ongoing retention issues facing nursing personnel.
