RESEARCH STUDIESJOB SATISFACTION AND TURNOVER AMONG NURSES:INTEGRATING RESEARCH FINDINGS ACROSS STUDIESAbstractA meta-analytic study investigated the causal relationships among jobsatisfaction, behavioral intentions, and nurse turnover behavior. Atheoretical model was proposed in which behavioral intentions were viewedas a direct antecedent to turnover behavior. Job satisfaction was expected tobe indirectly related to turnover by virtue of the mediating role of behavioral
intentions. Consistent with these expectations, a strong positive relationshipwas indicated between behavioral intentions and turnover; a strong negativerelationship between job satisfaction and behavioral intentions; and a smallnegative relationship between job satisfaction and turnover. The results ofthe modifier analysis suggested that effect sizes are fairly robust todifferences in study designs, response rates, and methods of measuring jobsatisfaction, but the manner in which behavioral intentions wereoperationalized appeared to moderate the relationship between behavioralintentions and turnover and job satisfaction. Of variables related to nursingjob satisfaction, work content and work environment had a strongerrelationship with job satisfaction than economic or individual differencevariables.THE DELIVERY OF QUALITY NURSING CARE: A GROUNDEDTHEORY STUDY OF THE NURSE’S PERSPECTIVEThis grounded theory study explored and described the delivery of qualitynursing care from the perspective of nurses. Data were gathered by taperecorded interviews, published literature and some participant observation.Ten registered nurses from an acute-care public hospital located in Perth,Western Australia were interviewed. Twelve additional transcripts frominterviews conducted by postgraduate students were also used. Qualitynursing care was perceived to relate to the degree to which patients’physical, psychosocial, and extra care needs were met. The consequences ofquality care were interpreted as ‘therapeutic effectiveness’, where thetherapy provided by nurses was perceived to positively affect patients’
healing. This was gauged by the patient’s psychosocial and physicalresponse to illness, safety, and satisfaction. Therapeutic effectiveness wasfacilitated by the development of positive relationships between nurses andpatients, nurse’s positive attributes and competent practices, as well as afunctional nursing team. The problem of nurses’ inability to consistentlyprovide quality nursing care to all patients was identified. Insufficient time(caused by a lack of human and physical resources) was perceived as themain reason for this. Dissatisfaction and stress in nurses was related to thisproblem. To deal with this, nurses used a process named ‘selectivefocusing’. Work was planned to most effectively utilize the time available,within the parameters of safety. Implications for nursing practice, educationand management are discussed, and directions for further research areprovided.NURSE-STAFFING LEVELS AND THE QUALITY OF CARE INHOSPITALSJack Needleman, Ph.D., Peter Buerhaus, Ph.D., R.N., Soeren Mattke, M.D.,M.P.H., Maureen Stewart, B.A., and Katya ZelevinskyN Engl J Med 2002; 346:1715-1722May 30, 2002 Background It is uncertain whether lower levels of staffing by nurses at hospitals are associated with an increased risk that patients will have complications or die. Methods We used administrative data from 1997 for 799 hospitals in 11 states (covering 5,075,969 discharges of medical patients and 1,104,659 discharges of surgical patients) to examine the
relation between the amount of care provided by nurses at the hospitaland patients outcomes. We conducted regression analyses in whichwe controlled for patients risk of adverse outcomes, differences in thenursing care needed for each hospitals patients, and other variables.Results The mean number of hours of nursing care per patient-day was 11.4, of which 7.8 hours were provided by registered nurses,1.2 hours by licensed practical nurses, and 2.4 hours by nurses aides.Among medical patients, a higher proportion of hours of care per dayprovided by registered nurses and a greater absolute number of hoursof care per day provided by registered nurses were associated with ashorter length of stay (P=0.01 and P<0.001, respectively) and lowerrates of both urinary tract infections (P<0.001 and P=0.003,respectively) and upper gastrointestinal bleeding (P=0.03 andP=0.007, respectively). A higher proportion of hours of care providedby registered nurses was also associated with lower rates ofpneumonia (P=0.001), shock or cardiac arrest (P=0.007), and “failureto rescue,” which was defined as death from pneumonia, shock orcardiac arrest, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, sepsis, or deep venousthrombosis (P=0.05). Among surgical patients, a higher proportion ofcare provided by registered nurses was associated with lower rates ofurinary tract infections (P=0.04), and a greater number of hours ofcare per day provided by registered nurses was associated with lowerrates of “failure to rescue” (P=0.008). We found no associationsbetween increased levels of staffing by registered nurses and the rateof in-hospital death or between increased staffing by licensed practicalnurses or nurses aides and the rate of adverse outcomes.
Conclusions A higher proportion of hours of nursing care provided by registered nurses and a greater number of hours of care by registered nurses per day are associated with better care for hospitalized patientsSUMMARY Till now we have discussed about the duties and responsibilities ofvarious categories of nursing personnel that includes aims of nursingpersonnel management, objectives of nursing personnel, various categoriesof personnel – clinical or institutional level, college level, school level and atcommunity level.CONCLUSION Personnel management means the task of dealing human relationshipswith in an organization. Aim of nursing personnel management is to employthose nurse best fitted with education, skill and experience to perform theprescribed work. Objectives are to guarantee fairness in the maintenance ofdiscipline and to upgrade and promote the existing staff wherever possible.BIBLIOGRAPHY
