Nurse Staffing Methodology, A Review and Critique of Selected Literature.
Aydelotte, Myrtle K.
In recent years much has been written on the subject of nurse staffing but few attempts have been made to integrate the literature and show relationships between the methodologies. This document is an effort to synthesize and critically examine the major methodological research studies in the field of nursing. Included are: (1) a bibliography of over 1,000 staffing studies, (2) a glossary of terms used in staffing research, and (3) an historical development of nurse staffing studies from which was developed a framework for classifying the staffing methodology. A complement to a previous report released in 1972,, the publication is intended as an aid for improving the use of nursing manpower and may be especially helpful to nursing administrators and practitioners.
