Abstract
To analyze the effect of nurses' organizational atmosphere on perceived professional benefits. A total of 436 nurses in five grade A hospitals in Tianjin received survey by applying self-designed basic demographic questionnaire and Perceived Organization Atmosphere Scale and Perceived Professional Benefits Scale. The average total score of perceived organizational atmosphere and perceived professional benefits was (3.38±0.54), (4.38±0.58) respectively. The organization atmosphere was statistically positively correlated to perceived professional benefits (0.581~0.710, P<0.01). Adequate resources, team behavior, quality control and evidence-based nursing support explained 51.3% of the total variation of nurses' perceived benefits by hierarchical regression. The study showed that nurses' perceived professional benefits were at the median level in the scales and has room to improve. The strategies and measures should be adopted in order to improve organizational atmosphere and enhance the nurses' sense of professional benefits, which could be useful to nursing team stability.
