Nursing Now: Gender Assessment of Nursing Leadership Global Survey

Nursing Now is conducting a survey of nurses worldwide to look at how gender is related to:

  • Perceptions of nurses, and of nurses in leadership positions
  • Nurses’ experience with discrimination and harassment
  • Challenges and barriers nurses face in moving into positions of leadership

We welcome and encourage all currently certified or formerly certified nurses, including nurse-midwives, to participate in this survey. 
Your answers will be confidential and your contribution will be incredibly valuable to our campaign to raise the status and profile of nursing and strengthen nursing leadership.

Article: Association between nurses’ quality of life and work environment

Roselaine Raimundo dos SantosMiriam Cristina Marques da Silva de PaivaWilza Carla Spiri

Abstract

Objective: To verify the association between demographic and labor data, quality of life and work environment of nurses. Methods: Cross-sectional and correlational study conducted in a tertiary university hospital from January to June 2017 with 143 nurses through self-administered instruments. The relationship between scores of quality of life, work environment, and demographic and labor data was analyzed by adjusting multiple linear regression models with a normal response for each domain of the instrument. Relationships were statistically significant if p<0.05. Results: The work environment presented a mean value of 2.3 and the quality of life 14.1. The following associations showed negative statistical significance: work in special and closed units in the physical and psychological domains; promotion in the previous 12 months in the psychological domain; positively evaluated in the social domain; organizational support in the social domain; and working 36-40 hours per week in the environment domain. The positive associations were: satisfaction with the salary in the psychological and environment domains; control over the environment in the social domain; and working time of six to 15 years and >20 years in the environment domain. Conclusion: The scales presented favorable scores for quality of life and work environment. The associations showed statistical significance in better quality of life scores for those satisfied with the salary and with work time of over six years, and lower scores for those working in closed and special units, for 36-40 hours a week and who were promoted and evaluated positively in the previous 12 months.
