Forty registered nurses and ten other personnel from various health professions and human resources departments participated in the assessment of supervisory support and practice environment measurements. The Supportive Supervisory Scale (SSS) was used to measure perceived nursing leadership behaviors. For the purpose of my research work, I will report or make reference with only the area that involved RN/RM.

It is predicted that by the year 2020, the growing number of people with chronic disease who will require health care, in addition to the increase in life expectancy of the general population, will create a nursing shortage that will be at a critical point.
