Background Organizations are forced to stay and respond to environmental changes in order to survive. Nurses’ readiness for organizational change is considered a key aspect of any organizational change efforts and can be a determining factor of successful change. Patients and methods This study aimed to investigate factors associated with nurses’ readiness for organizational change. A descriptive exploratory design was used in this study. The study was conducted in all In-patient Care Units at Beni Sueif University Hospital. A convenience sample of staff nurses working in the above-mentioned setting constituted the study sample (N=179). Results The studied sample had moderate readiness and low resistance for organizational change. There was a statistically significant positive correlation between nurses’ readiness for organizational change and both professional nursing practice environment and structural empowerment. A negative correlation was found between nurses’ readiness for organizational change and both dispositional resistance to organizational change and emotional climate. Recommendations Nursing leaders’ efforts must be directed toward creating magnet environment that promotes nurses’ readiness for change by providing them with access to opportunity to learn and grow and access to support and create an autonomous work practice. Enhancement of emotional work climate among nurses is of great importance to promote their readiness for organizational change.
