Abstract:
Purpose: Research within Magnet Hospitals demonstrates that characteristics within the nursing work environment influence nurse and patient outcomes. As part of a larger project, nurse leadership and support, as attributes of the work environment, were examined in relationship to nurse satisfaction. Theoretical Framework: Organization and leadership theories posit that registered nurses (RNs) satisfaction with their supervisor has a direct effect on RN job satisfaction, as well as on patient satisfaction with nursing care. Moreover, RNs' satisfaction with their supervisor exerts a positive effect on the reciprocal relationship between these two important outcomes. Methods (Design, Sample, Setting, Measures, Analysis): Following approval by the hospitals' internal review board, a secondary analysis of data collected from the Press Ganey Employee Perspective Survey was conducted. The convenience sample of 733 RNs from the parent study consisted of nurses from 45 inpatient units including medical/surgical, telemetry, obstetrics, and oncology. This sample represents a 64% return rate among surveyed nurses within the Robert Wood Johnson Health Network, which is comprised of six acute care hospitals in New Jersey. A causal model design tested the research hypotheses. Results: Results using Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), confirmed by Pearson r, identified a positive relationship between the nurse manager and RN job satisfaction (r= .79, p< .01). Specifically, RN satisfaction is positively related to senior nursing leadership style (r = .47, p < .01). Conclusions and Implications: SEM evaluates two models concurrently: a measurement and theoretical model. It tests the patient satisfaction-RN satisfaction model as it measures all variables simultaneously. These findings highlight the importance of the RN-nurse supervisor relationship, and contribute to evidence-based decision-making regarding the importance of nursing leadership development within hospital systems. Moreover, this project demonstrates the advantages to hospital systems in developing programs of research that can guide the organization in implementing evidence-based programs and policies.
