PURPOSE: : This study investigated the perceptions of nursing hostility and job satisfaction of new RNs, comparing the working settings of Magnet® and non-Magnet hospitals.
METHODS: : An online survey of new graduate RNs was conducted using the Negative Acts Questionnaire-Revised, the McCloskey/Mueller Satisfaction Survey, the Casey-Fink Graduate Nurse Experience Survey, and a demographic questionnaire.
RESULTS: : Findings indicated that RNs of Magnet and non-Magnet facilities experienced similar hostility and job satisfaction results. Magnet nurses (n = 226) perceived nursing hostility significantly different than non-Magnet nurses (n = 939); however, both groups reported a global perception of nursing hostility as new RNs.
CONCLUSION: : Based on this study's findings, greater consideration should be placed on orientation/residency programs, collaborative partnerships between academia and service, zero tolerance for behaviors undermining culture safety, and addressing nursing hostility.
