Intensive Care Unit Healthy Work Environments: A Concept Analysis

This doctoral learner’s dissertation will use Rodgers and Knafl's evolutionary concept analysis method to examine and clarify the concept of an ICU healthy work environment.  The purpose of this evolutionary concept analysis is to develop an empirically-based definition of a healthy work environment as conceptualized in the literature and perceived by staff nurses and frontline nurse managers in the ICU clinical setting.

This poster presentation will contain a review of the literature reflecting the evolving concept of nurses’ work environments over the past 25 years including current research on AACN’s standards.  The review of literature also presents studies on the stress-filled environments of ICU nurses.  The poster will include the purpose and design of the study, review of literature, and Rogers and Knafl's (2000) evolutionary concept analysis method.  Sampled literature and interviews with ICU staff nurses and frontline nurse managers will comprise the data collection and preliminary data analysis may be available at the time of the poster presentation. Watson's Human Caring Theory and AACN’s standards of a healthy work environment will be used to organize and compare findings of this concept analysis. The findings will assist nurse leaders and hospital administrators in determining how staff nurses and frontline nurse managers perceive attributes, antecedents, and consequences of a healthy work environment in the ICU setting.
