dc.description.abstractThe purpose of this study was to·investigate perceptions of conflict as reported by Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) employed in the health care setting. The instrument entitled "Study of Working_Relationships as Perceived by the LPN" was modified from a questionnaire developed by Lowenstein. and Glanville. A descriptive correlational design was used for the analysis. The majority of the data used for analysis in this study was secondary data. Data analysis illustrated overall_ job satisfaction and a general atmosphere of friendliness and support between LPNs and RNs. However many of the LPNs felt that they were discriminated against because they were LPNs. In particular many LPNs reported a lack of support by nursing.management and a lack of caring by the organization. Additional findings demonstrated no significant differences in job satisfaction by age, ethnic origin, or socioeconomic level. However, the~e was a significant association between perceptions of the organizational climate and ethnic origin.en_US
