Abstract:

Poster presented on Friday, April 12, 2013, Saturday, April 13, 2013

Purpose: Our purpose was to examine the influence of senior nurse (SNL) leadership practices on middle (MM) and first-line (FLM) nurse managers’ experiences of empowerment and organizational support and ultimately on their perceptions of patient care quality and turnover intentions.

Methods: This study was a secondary analysis of data collected using non-experimental, predictive mailed survey design. Data from 231 middle and 788 first-line Canadian acute care managers was used to test the hypothesized model using path analysis in each group.

Results: The results showed an adequate fit of the hypothesized model in both groups but with an added path between leadership practices and support in the MM group.

Conclusions: Transformational leadership practices of SNLs empower middle and first-line nurse managers, leading to increased perceptions of organizational support, quality care and decreased intent to leave.
