Competency and work environments among military and civilian perioperative registered nurses: A predictive model

This study examined the self-assessed competency levels, work environments, sub-specialty training and selected demographic characteristics of two groups—civilian and military (United States Navy) perioperative nurses. The Nurse Competence Scale (NCS) was used to assess competency levels, and the Practice Environment Scale–Nursing Work Index (PES-NWI) was used to assess the nursing work environment.
