Abstract

Occupational mental health has been linked to productivity and other desired organizational outcomes, such as commitment and satisfaction. Kanter's model of work empowerment was used to examine the relation between 62 staff nurses' perceptions of empowerment in their work settings and their occupational mental health. The authors discuss their findings and suggest organizational interventions that can be used by nurse administrators to ameliorate work stress and improve work effectiveness.
