There is growing evidence in the nursing literature about the positive impact of healthy work environments on staff satisfaction, retention, improved patient outcomes and organizational performance. Many organizations have launched efforts to improve their work environments. Achievement of Magnet® designation is considered to be the gold standard for hospitals who seek to build professional practice environments that are healthy and support the work of nurses. Findings from a growing body of nursing research have provided evidence supporting that Magnet® hospitals have increased patient and nurse satisfaction, improved recruitment and retention of nurses, and improved patient outcomes. Workplaces can be healthy if nurses and employers are resolute in their desire to address not only the physical environment, but also less tangible barriers to staff and patient safety. However, we know that this will not happen without an understanding of the factors contributing to unhealthy work environments and a commitment to embrace solutions. The ingredients for success — skilled communication, true collaboration, effective decision making, appropriate staffing, meaningful recognition and authentic leadership.
