Why Assess?

There is mounting evidence that unhealthy work environments contribute to medical errors, ineffective delivery of care, and stress among healthcare professionals.

Do you know how healthy your work environment is?

  • A baseline measurement of how your team perceives the health of its work environment.
  • References to resources that will help you improve the health of your work environment.
  • A tool to track progress in implementing the AACN Standards for Establishing and Sustaining Healthy Work Environments.
  • A sample results report.
