    Holland P, Allen BC and Cooper BK
  • Description
    "Despite research indicating increasing stress and pressure in the work of nurses and the evidence in relation to the increasing shortfall of nurses, nation-wide studies of nurses' attitudes to their work have not previously been undertaken in Australia. This study attempts to address this issue through a comprehensive national survey covering the intrinsic and extrinsic aspects of nursing work in Australia today, and what nurses perceive are the shortfalls in their working conditions."
