Kubsch, S. M. (1996). These things lead to high nurse turnover rates and short staffing, which causes further discontent in the nursing profession. There may be additional benefits for hospitals that promote nursing power. Nurses’ involvement in hospital affairs is one of the hallmarks of a magnet hospital environment (McClure & Hinshaw, 2002) but otherwise may not be apparent. Revolutionizing nursing with an empowerment care model. According to Rafael (1996) power has been viewed as a outcome of masculinity and in direct opposition to caring, which is seen as the essence of nursing and traditionally aligned with femininity. When nursing embraces caring, empathy, and compassion as components of power, nurses will be more likely to adopt and accept power as part of their practice (Benner). Learning from success: Autonomy and empowerment. Self-determination, similar to autonomy, refers to feelings of control that are exerted over one’s work. The ability to act according to one’s knowledge and judgment is known as control over the content of nursing practice (Laschinger et al., 1997), and is often synonymous with autonomy. The positive findings of the magnet hospital research may be attributed to empowering organizational social structures, although they were not identified as such. Laschinger and her colleagues have done the bulk of the work on structural empowerment in nursing (Laschinger, Finegan, Shamian, & Almost, 2001; Laschinger et al., 2003; Laschinger, Finegan, Shamian, & Wilk, 2004; Leiter & Laschinger, 2006; Sabiston & Laschinger, 1995).

Although evidence in the nursing literature supports the roles of Kanter's opportunity and power structures as influential to nurses' work effectiveness, this model of empowerment has not been tested within the context of nurse aides' work in nursing homes. Nurses’ lack of power may be rooted in a societal reluctance in general to discuss power openly (Kanter, 1979). Promoting nurses’ self-efficacy: A leadership strategy to improve practice. According to Spreitzer, the process of psychological empowerment is a motivational construct which manifests as a set of four cognitions that are shaped by a work environment.

Other work environments may not be as empowering, yet there will still be a few hardy individuals who manage to do whatever it takes to be effective on the job. Some researchers have described types of power, such as legal, coercive, remunerative, normative, and expert power (Conger & Kanungo, 1988). The Current State of Nursing Empowerment Related to Nursing Care. Empowerment is on a continuum, because the environment will provide relatively more or less empowerment, depending on how many of the four structures are present in the work setting. For starters, numerous reports demonstrate that empowerment is an important predictor of organizational commitment in staff nurses. An examination of the two major areas of empowerment literature in nursing, as well as a third area not yet embraced by nursing, may help inform future directions for the development of power and empowerment for nurses. Empowerment and staff nurse decision involvement in nursing work environments: Testing Kanter's theory of structural power in organizations. A necessary precursor for both autonomy and power is competence (Kramer & Schmalenberg, 1993), which has its foundation in educational preparation. Mahmodabadi AZ 1, Zakerimoghadam M 2, Fatah SG 3, Sohrabi A 4, Dolatabadi ZA 1. Educational factors contribute to this situation, and they are twofold. Autonomy represents one kind of power nurses need, and has been defined as "the freedom to act on what one knows" (Kramer & Schmalenberg, 1993, p. 62).

Although relatively little attention has been paid to how a magnet work environment contributes to nurses’ sense of power (Upenieks, 2003c), repeated magnet hospital study findings of empowering workplace structures and their relationship to improved nursing and patient outcomes suggest that magnet hospitals attract nurses in part because of their empowering environments. Patient reported outcome measures now take centre-stage in implementing strategies to increase patient empowerment.
