Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between structural empowerment and nurse job satisfaction. Structural empowerment is an essential component of a healthy workplace enabling nurses to provide quality care and feel satisfied in their roles. This integrated literature review included twelve quantitative research studies identified in CINAHL, Medline, and SAGE. Inclusion and exclusion criteria were identified. There is a strong, positive relationship between structural empowerment and nurse job satisfaction. Nursing leaders must promote healthy work environments built on structural empowerment to increase job satisfaction and retain a solid nursing workforce for the future.
