Organizational traits associated with quality patient care are essential to home care nursing

present in work environments.

The survey was mailed to 660 home care nurses randomly selected from the American Nurses Association list and 635 New Zealand district nurses from the Nursing Council of New Zealand list. Findings are based on the 403 completed surveys received from home care nurses in 48 states and 320 New Zealand district nurses.

For this study, respondents were not asked to indicate the degree that traits depicted by the NWI-R were "present" in their work environment. Instead, nurses were asked to rate the importance of each item on the NWI-R to support their professional nursing practice.

According to the survey, 80 percent or more of the home care and district nurses "agreed" or "strongly agreed" with 47 of the 49 traits. In reviewing the survey, Flynn said, home care and district nurses valued the same core set of organizational traits as hospital-based nurses. "Further research is needed to determine if this set of organizational attributes are not only important to home care and district nurses, but also allow predicting positive nurse and patient outcomes in those settings," Flynn noted.

From its headquarters at Rutgers Newark, Rutgers College of Nursing offers a broad range of academic programs on all three Rutgers campuses. The college offers a master's program with unique practitioner specialties and the only doctoral (Ph.D) nursing degree in New Jersey.
