OBJECTIVE: To examine the relationships between practice environment factors and nurse manager (NM) perceptions of workplace mistreatment (WPM).


BACKGROUND: NMs have a unique perspective of business operations and care delivery and can offer insight into how WPM manifests in clinical settings at the leadership level.


METHODS: Researchers used a cross-sectional correlational design using a nonexperimental causal technique. A convenience sample of 139 NMs completed a survey regarding their perceptions of organizational change, the practice environment, and WPM.


RESULTS: NMs reported experiencing incivility (98%) and bullying (90%). Approximately 20% variance explained mistreatment by relationships with supervisors and budgeted resources (F4,134 = 9.16, P = 0.000).


CONCLUSIONS: Modifiable factors can be identified to prevent or reduce WPM.
