Abstract:
A secondary data analysis was conducted to explore differences between registered nurses (RNs) in urban and rural hospitals regarding professional nursing practice as indexed by self-reported organizational commitment, autonomy, control over nursing practice, and group cohesion; to explore differences in job satisfaction; and to describe the influence of professional nursing practice on nurse satisfaction. Baseline data collected for the Differentiated Group Professional Practice project (#1-UO1-NR02153) was the primary source of data. This secondary analysis utilized a two-group, cross-sectional descriptive design with a sample of 271 urban and 196 rural RNs. Urban RNs reported higher organizational commitment. Although overall job satisfaction was similar between urban and rural RNs, urban RNs reported higher satisfaction with organizational policy, while rural RNs were more satisfied with nurse interaction. Organizational commitment, autonomy, control over nursing practice, and group cohesion influenced job satisfaction positively, but with different patterns, in urban and rural subjects.
