Abstract

Executive Summary▸ The literature is rich with evidence that a nurse's work environment impacts his or her experience of factors related to turnover intent.▸ However, one area of inquiry that has received little attention is the work environment of nursing faculty.▸ The aim of this study was to gain an understanding of participants’ lived experiences related to work environment quality and it's link with retention; use the knowledge gained to construct a definition of quality work environments from a nursing faculty perspective; and formulate grassroots recommendations that can serve as a stimulant for change within organizations.▸ To achieve these aims, a participatory action research method, photovoice, was employed.▸ Using this framework, nursing faculty were empowered to collect data using photography and construct meaning and recommendations for change.
