Abstract:

Many of the results obtained by Nealey and Blood J. App. Psych. v52, 1968 in a study of nursing supervision in a Veterans Administrration Hospital were reinforced in the present study which was carried out in the same setting. In addition, multiple measures of nursing behavior and nursing effectiveness were examined by the multitrait-multimethod approach. Estimates of nurse behavior by the nurses themselves and by their superiors were uncorrelated with each other and with a more objective measure of nurse behavior. Interpretations of multitrait-multimethod results obtained in organizational settings are discussed. The obtained relations among predictors and between predictors and criteria of performance, have implications for the establishment of an effective performance-reward-feedback system by which superiors could motivate subordinates.
