Abstract

▶ Nursing turnover is costly for health care organizations. ▶ Newly licensed registered nurses work behavior is a complex process, influenced by their attitudes toward their work, personal characteristics, job opportunities, and workplace attributes. ▶ Several characteristics are significant in predicting satisfaction (ethnicity, gender) and organizational commitment (patient load, mandatory overtime, shift, and unit type) and intent to stay (income, age) over and above work attitudes. ▶ Among the most important implications are how the findings can inform management and policy. ▶ Findings from this study provide information that may be useful for those organizations that want to decrease their turnover rates.
