Nurse Practice Environment

For the past six years, Saint Clare’s nurses have participated in the annual National Database of Nursing Quality Indicators (NDNQI) RN survey. The Practice Environment Scale (PES) was the survey instrument used again this year and the results indicate that Saint Clare’s nurses have a favorable nursing practice environment. The PES is a psychometrically sound measure of the nature of the hospital practice environment with the following five subscales:

  1. Nurse Participation in Hospital Affairs
  2. Nursing Foundations for Quality of Care
  3. Nurse Manager Ability, Leadership, and Support of Nurses
  4. Staffing and Resource Adequacy
  5. Collegial Nurse-Physician Relations
