Abstract

Hospital work environments that promote nurse leadership, encourage nurse participation in hospital governance and decision-making, assure adequate resources and staffing, and foster collaboration between doctors and nurses are consistently associated with better patient, quality, safety, and job outcomes. The work environment offers a powerful target for improvement efforts and warrants the resources and attention of health care administrators.
