Abstract

EXECUTIVE SUMMARYThe future of professional nursing depends on finding ways to create high-quality work environments that retain newcomers to the profession.The purpose of this study was to examine the combined effect of supportive professional practice environments, civil working relationships, and empowerment on new graduates' experiences of burnout at work.The results support previous evidence of the importance of working environments that enable new graduates to practice according to professional standards learned in their educational programs.Further, the results provide a more comprehensive understanding of the impact of workplace conditions on new graduate burnout by demonstrating the additive value of working in collegial work settings in which nurses respected others and refrain from incivility behaviors in their day to day work.Given the current nursing shortage, every effort must be made to ensure that new graduates are exposed to high-quality work environments that engage them with their work.
