Abstract

Nurse executives are aware of the complexities of organizational culture. It impacts the nursing work environment and patient care safety and quality. The authors describe several widely available tools that nurse leaders can use to assess organizational culture in the work environment. The psychometric and conceptual strengths and weaknesses of the measures are described and recommendations for use in nursing and patient care administration are provided.
