Nursing Magazine reported results of a survey of more than 1800 nurses across the country concerning job satisfaction and retention. Nurses from magnet hospitals (hospitals that successfully attract and retain nurses) describe the staffing situation in their units as follows:
|1. Desperately short of help—patient care has suffered||12|
|2. Short, but patient care hasn’t suffered||32|
|4. More than adequate||12|
A survey of 500 nurses from non-magnet hospitals gave the following responses to the staffing situation.
Do the data indicate that the nurses from the non-magnet hospitals have a different distribution of opinions? Use α = 0.05.
