Summary or Abstract : The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship of environmental constraints, self-efficacy, and company risk to nurses' intentions to provide violence prevention education/training. A secondary purpose was to describe occupational health nurses' beliefs about issues related to workplace violence and prevention of workplace violence. An instrument was developed to elicit demographic and employment characteristics and measure the relationship of environmental constraints, self-efficacy, company risk, and intentions. The survey was sent to a random sample of 700 occupational health nurses who were members of the American Association of Occupational Health Nurses (AAOHN). Three hundred and fifty-seven surveys were used for the data analyses. Factor analysis identified the presence of ten independent variables and one dependent variable. Four factors identified from environmental constraints (barriers) included resource barriers, employee barriers, time, and job responsibility. Five factors identified from company risk included epidemiology risk, administrative risk, management risk, reported incidents risk, and stress risk. Internal consistency and test-retest reliability were determined for each of the factors (subscales) by using Cronbach's alpha and Pearson's coefficient, respectively. Regression analysis found self-efficacy, resource barriers, administrative risk, job responsibility, the nurses' history of providing programs, and the nurses having been mandated to provide such programs to be significantly related to the occupational nurses' intention to provide violence prevention education/training. Descriptive data found that the majority of nurses believed that both they and their companies were at risk of violence. Many of the nurses responded that certain characteristics, which increase the risk of violence, were present in their work environments. These included a high number of stressed employees, excessive demands for overtime, an authoritarian management style, and the lack of teamwork and employee control. In addition, many of the nurses responded that they had experienced harassment, threats, or physical assaults at their current workplaces. The study demonstrated that workplace violence is a concern for many occupational health nurses and that efforts are needed to encourage nurses to engage in violence prevention education/training at their workplaces. Results from the study also emphasized the need to provide occupational health nurses with not only the necessary resources but also the opportunities for them to increase their self-efficacy in providing violence prevention programs.
