Do Australian public and nonprofit nurses cope with administrative stressors?
Teo, Stephen, Newton, Cameron J., Chang, Esther, Pick, David, & Yeung, Melissa (2011) Do Australian public and nonprofit nurses cope with administrative stressors? In Annual Meeting of the Academy of Management : East Meets West – Enlightening, Balancing, Transcending, 12 – 16 August 2011, San Antonio, Texas.
The nursing profession in Australia and other OECD countries such as the USA and the UK, have focused on ways to recruit and retain nurses (e.g., Bartram, Joiner, & Stanton, 2004). Research has shown that the most common factors impacting negatively on retention include sources of nursing stress such as workload and work environment. While the literature has shown that nursing staff encounter these stressors, studies do not examine the effects of stress caused by an increasing degree of administrative demand placed on nurses, caused by the new public management (NPM) reform in public and nonprofit (PNP) health care organizations. At best, some studies have alluded to some aspects of administrative related stressors (vis-a-vis nursing related stressors such as death, sickness, etc), but they have not been examined in any detail. Similarly, extant research has not examined how nurses cope with these administrative stressors. These will be the main aims of the present study.
