Understanding the Role of the Professional Practice Environment on Quality of Care in Magnet® and Non-Magnet Hospitals



Understanding the Role of the Professional Practice Environment on Quality of Care in Magnet® and Non-Magnet Hospitals



Journal of Nursing Administration 45(10 Suppl): S52



The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between Magnet RecognitionA and nurse-reported quality of care. MagnetA hospitals are recognized for nursing excellence and quality patient outcomes; however, few studies have explored contributing factors for these superior outcomes. This was a secondary analysis of linked nurse survey data, hospital administrative data, and a listing of American Nurses Credentialing Center Magnet hospitals. Multivariate regressions were modeled before and after propensity score matching to assess the relationship between Magnet status and quality of care. A mediation model assessed the indirect effect of the professional practice environment on quality of care. Nurse-reported quality of care was significantly associated with Magnet Recognition after matching. The professional practice environment mediates the relationship between Magnet status and quality of care. A prominent feature of Magnet hospitals, a professional practice environment that is supportive of nursing, plays a role in explaining why Magnet hospitals have better nurse-reported quality of care.
