BACKGROUND: There is limited research on the effects of nationally oriented health care workforce interventions on RNs' perceptions of their work systems and health-related quality of life (HRQOL). PURPOSE: Guided by a systems framework, we examined the association of being affiliated with an organization partnered with the American Nurses Association's Healthy Nurse, Healthy Nation (HNHN) program on RNs' perceptions of their work systems and HRQOL. METHODS: We performed a correlational, cross-sectional secondary analysis of a national RN sample (N = 2,166) with case-control matching. We used multiple linear and logistic regressions to evaluate our research questions. DISCUSSION: Affiliation with an HNHN partner organization was directly associated with more desirable work system perceptions, and indirectly associated with greater HRQOL. Organization-level workplace interventions hold promise to improve RN working conditions and well-being. CONCLUSION: There is an ongoing need to continue developing and evaluating scalable workplace well-being interventions for health care organizations.
