Nurses in the workplace: expectations and needs

A Global Survey of Nurses (May 2009)

The “Nurses in the Workplace: Expectations and Needs” survey is a collaborative study by the International Council of Nurses (ICN) and Pfizer Inc. External Medical Affairs.  It is an extensive global attitudinal survey, which asked more than 2,000 nurses about the opportunities and challenges that face their profession and themselves, individually.

The study, conducted in April and May 2009, included a representative quota sample of 200 nurses in each of the following 11 countries: Brazil, Canada, Colombia, Japan, Kenya, Portugal, South Africa, Taiwan, Uganda, the U.S.A., and the United Kingdom.  The study is not meant to be an exhaustive look at how all nurses view these issues, but rather is designed to be used as a tool to promote discussion at the national level about the issues facing nursing today.
