Abstract

This study investigated the organizational health of nursing schools in the Philippines cited as Centers of Excellence in nursing education and explored the relationships among organizational health, perceived organizational effectiveness and school performance in the nursing licensure examinations. The sample was composed of 123 fulltime faculty members. Organizational health was measured through the faculty members' responses on the Organizational Health Inventory (OHI) while the Index of Perceived Organizational Effectiveness (IPOE) measured organizational effectiveness. Data analysis indicated that the Centers of Excellence have average overall index of health. Correlation analysis indicated a significant positive relationship between organizational health and effectiveness. Three dimensions of health notably academic emphasis, initiating structure, and institutional integrity significantly correlated with effectiveness. Academic emphasis was found to be the only significant predictor of effectiveness.
