Work environment perceptions of pediatric nurses.
This study assessed whether pediatric nurse perceptions of the work environment differed (1) from nurses employed in nonpediatric settings, (2) by the type of pediatric practice setting, or (3) by year of birth. The results of the study suggested that pediatric nurses had more positive perceptions of unit support, workload, and overall nurse satisfaction than their colleagues working in nonpediatric facilities. Specific to pediatrics, younger nurses and those working in critical care settings seemed to be the happiest with their work environment.
