Abstract:
Purpose: Organizational culture (OC) is a factor influencing hospitals. Research of the importance of OC has rarely been examined. Further, little work has been done on OC in Korean nursing. This study investigates the relationship between OC, quality of working life (QWL) and organizational effectiveness (OE) perceived by nurses in Korean hospitals. Methods: Convenience sample was obtained from nurses working in three Korean national university hospitals. Data were collected for two weeks in February 2003, using a self-administered questionnaire. Response rate was 85.3% (145/170). Statistical methods utilized: descriptive statistics, Confirmatory Factor Analysis, Pearson's Correlation Coefficient, t-test, General Linear Model, and hierarchical multiple regression. SAS (v. 8.2) was used. Results: Majority were 30 to 39 years old (58.62%) with 2-years college (59.3%), and 10 to 14 years (34.5%) of experience. No statistical significance noted with OC by age, only rationality culture by education (F=3.19, p=0.044). QWL by age, education and experience was statistically significant (p< .05). Significance noted in OE by age (p< 0.01) and experience (p< .001). Highly significant correlations between: OC vs. QWL (r=0.46, p< .0001); QWL vs. OE (r=0.61, p< .0001); and OC vs. OE (r=0.36, p< 0.0001). QWL addition with other independent variables resulted in significant increments in R2 28.6%, (F (1, 140) =71.439,p< .001). Addition of interaction terms QWL and OC, R was 0.686 (F (6, 138) =20.418, p< .001). Conclusions and Implications: OC, QWL and OE are variables that impact the outcomes of patient care delivery. Without efficient and effective nursing care, desired patient outcomes cannot be achieved. As recruitment and retention of nurses become more difficult and with the foreign recruitment of nurses, administrators need to prioritize areas that important to nurses. Intact OC and QWL for nurses will undoubtedly lead to an improved OE.
