Work-Related Burnout, Job Satisfaction, Intent to Leave, and Nurse-Assessed Quality of Care Among Travel Nurses

Objective: This research study examines work-related burnout, job satisfaction, nurse-assessed quality of care, and intent to leave in travel nurses, a population that has not been studied previously.
Background: Travel nurses are frequently used to supplement nursing staff in acute care hospitals, especially in times of shortage-understanding their satisfaction with the job may further illuminate the problem of nurse job dissatisfaction in general.

Leadership-Culture Relationship in Nursing Units in Acute Care Hospitals

The phenomena of leadership and organizational culture (OC) has been defined as the driving forces in the success or failure of an organization. Today, nurse managers must demonstrate leadership behaviors or styles that are appropriate for the constantly changing, complex, and turbulent health care delivery system. In this study, researchers explored the relationship between nurse managers' leadership styles and OC of nursing units within an acute care hospital that had achieved excellent organizational performance as demonstrated by a consistent increase in patient satisfaction ratings.
