dc.description.abstract Aim The present study provides an overview of the status of the nursing profession in Lebanon and compares and contrasts the opinions of directors, nurse supervisors/ managers and nurses regarding the nursing profession and the workplace. Background There are limited publications concerning the working conditions of nurses in Lebanon, and no studies on the views of directors, supervisors/managers and nurses regarding the priorities of the nursing profession.

Method Data were collected from 45 hospitals using a mixed methods design. Qualitative data was obtained from 45 nursing directors whereas quantitative data were collected from 64 nursing supervisors and 624 nurses. Results Similarities and differences in the opinions of nurses, nurse supervisors/ managers and nurse directors regarding critical issues for the nursing profession are discussed and contrasted. Conclusions/implications Nurses are more likely to be satisfied and committed to their profession when they feel that their opinions are being heard and that their work environment promotes professional advancement.
