Abstract

Lack of staff engagement in quality improvement (QI) is a persistent challenge in improving quality in health care. In this study, we examined variables associated with nurse-reported participation in QI using data from over 500 registered nurses employed in US hospitals. Of the 16 studied variables, based on the adjusted multivariate regression analysis, the following were positively associated (p < 0.05) with nurse-reported participation in QI: working in advanced practice nursing and manager roles versus staff nurse role, working a full-time work schedule versus a part-time work schedule, and reporting higher levels of procedural justice, quantitative workload, and work motivation.
