  1. Occupational prestige for registered nurses in the Asia-Pacific region : status consensus.

    Article - En anglais

    Occupational prestige for nurses may result in improved job satisfaction, enhanced abilities in health promotion activities, and autonomy in decision-making related to patient care.

    Regional consensus in the ascription of professional occupational status and consequent prestige, between health workers and within registered nurses, has been investigated within the Asia-Pacific region and other countries.

    Consensus for registered nurses and medical officers at the level of professional was supported for 66% of countries.

    Australia, although rapid and complete in its transition to degree level education, still reflects a paraprofessional status compared with the professional status of medical officers.

    Registered nurses from Thailand and the Philippines led the region in within-group consensus with 80% of registered nurses holding a degree as their minimum educational qualification.

    Findings highlight the need to promote professional status for all registered nurses within the Asia-Pacific region and outline areas for potential disjuncture between status and prestige achievement.
