This study represents a survey of the nursing quality assurance programs in 12 hospitals in Alberta.
The objectives of the study were; to indentify the nature, content and costs of the programs, to determine the extent of nurse involvement in the design and operation of the programs, and the value and importance nurses place on their programs.
The major findings of the study tend to support the view that the principles of organizational change theory have not been adequately addressed in terms of nursing quality assurance programs.
Generally, nurses reported that they were insufficiently informed concerning their programs.
