The presence of characteristics on the environment that favor the professional nursing practice contributes to achieving positive results with patients, professionals and institutions. Whereas conducting surveys that assess the presence of these characteristics of the work environment should be developed in order to ensure safe and quality care to patients, encourage benchmarking and the construction of indicators that can facilitate the assessment of environmental impact in health systems, the general objective of this study is to describe the presence of characteristics that favor the professional practice of nursing and to identify the variable that contributes to building a positive practice environment. The specific objectives are intended to: describe the levels of emotional exhaustion, job satisfaction, perception of quality of care and intention to leave the job next year; evaluate the different personal and professional characteristics influence the perception of the practice of environmental characteristics, levels of emotional exhaustion, job satisfaction, quality perception and intention to leave the job; classify the environments of the institutions in mixed, favorable or unfavorable; compare the work environment of the different institutions at national and international levels; assess whether accredited institutions have more favorable environment than not believe and assess whether in favorable environments for nursing practice, the emotional exhaustion levels and intention to leave the job will be smaller and the job satisfaction and perceived quality will be more positive. To develop the study of transversal and quantitative approach, will be invited to nine hospitals in the city of Campinas, entered in the National Register of Health Establishments as general hospitals with over 100 beds and have specialized units. For sample, which will be calculated after the approval and submission of quantitative personnel by participating institutions, professionals who meet the inclusion criteria will be considered. For the collection of data will be used: a record for personal and professional characteristics of the sample, two questions, one for evaluation of the perception of quality of care and one for the intention to leave the job next year, the Brazilian version of PES, the subscale emotional exhaustion Burnout Inventory Maslach, the subscale job satisfaction Safety Attitudes Questionnaire Short Form. Data will be collected by the researcher and tabulated in Microsoft Excel for Windows and analyzed using Statistical Analysis System for Windows® and Smart PLS®. Absolute frequencies will be used, and relative measures of dispersion (mean and standard deviation). The Mann-Whitney test, Anova and Spearman will be used. To identify the effect of environment on outcome variables and the most important construct for building an environment, the structural equation modeling is used. Prior to the beginning of data collection, the project must be authorized by the responsible institutions, examined and approved by the Ethics Committee of the State University of Campinas. (AU)
