Abstract

Nurse executives continue to search for ways to support their staff nurses through enhancing their work environment to promote professional practice environments. Given that not all hospitals have the intensive resources necessary to pursue Magnet Recognition certification or the Texas Nurses Association's Texas Nurse-Friendly Hospital program designation, this does not prohibit them from pursuing specific components adapted for their own institution. The authors discuss 3 programs to enhance the work environment through increased professional practice. The rationale for these programs, preimplementation and postimplementation are explained.
