Abstract : The purpose of this exploratory, descriptive study was to examine the relationships between nursing Structure of Care indicators and Client Outcome indicators in the acute care setting. An additional purpose was to determine whether the nursing Process of Care significantly mediated the effects that nursing Structure has on Outcomes. This study was a secondary analysis of data from a research project on the Differentiated Group Professional Practice Model (DGPP). Correlational statistics were used to examine the relationships between variables. Multiple regressions were used to further examine the effects of independent variables on dependent variables and make determinations regarding a possible mediating variable.
