The relationship among nurses’ work practice environment, organizational commitment, and work engagement was explored in this study. A Descriptive-correlation with modified qualitative validation was the research design utilized in the study. One hundred thirty-eight (138) Emergency Department (ED) staff nurses who have been working in the ED for more than six months in 13 tertiary hospitals in northern Philippines answered the questionnaires. The sample size was calculated using the G*Power® program. Simple random sampling was used in selecting the respondents from May to August 2015. The Practice Environment Scale of the Nursing Work Index, the Organizational Commitment Questionnaire, and the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale were the tools used to obtain the data. Data were analyzed using mean, Pearson’s r Correlation, and multiple regression. In general, ED staff nurses describe their work practice environment in the Emergency Department as good. ED staff nurses are slightly committed to their department. ED staff nurses are highly engaged in their work. There is a weak and insignificant relationship between the work practice environment and organizational commitment, work practice environment and work engagement and organizational commitment and work engagement of nurses in the ED. Work practice environment significantly influences the work engagement of nurses in the ED, while organizational commitment does not significantly do so. The results of this study offer further inputs in the discourse regarding the relationship between the quality of the work practice environment, organizational commitment, and work engagement. The workplace should address any or all of the dimensions of opportunity, information, resources, and support to increase commitment and engagement.
