This study was attempted to identify the working environment of nurses by identifying the key keywords associated with the unfair working conditions of Korean nurses reported in various media outlets in the media. "Nurse NOT (nurse) or nurse" was searched on BIG KINDS, selected articles related to the unfair treatment of nurses, extracted the final 309 cases, and classified into six categories of hospital-level, regional, keyword, and integrated keywords in the article using Excel2007. Of the 309 articles, 79 (22.56 percent) were published from November 2015 to October 31, 2016, 92 (29.77 percent) from third medical institutions, and 121 (39.1 percent) from across the country. The integrated keywords were summarized into a total of 14, followed by sexual assault/sexual harassment (14.88%), shortage of nurses (11.65%), burning nurses (11.0%), unfair dismissal (10.67%) and physical assault (10.35%). The findings could be used as basic data for establishing a positive working environment for nurses and improving positive image awareness of nursing professionals.
