Abstract

Executive Summary▸ The aim of this study was to identify predictors of nurses’ intent to stay at their current jobs.▸ The results showed nurses’ intent to stay was significantly related to age, marital status, working years, clinical ladder, working unit, choice of working in the current hospital, and organizational climate.▸ Positive organizational climate, personal choice of working at their hospital, and age were positive predictors; working in an intensive care unit was a negative predictor of nurses’ intent to stay.▸ Nurse managers could improve nurses’ intent to stay by enhancing human resource management, hiring nurses committed to working at their current hospitals, and boosting organizational commitment.▸ Healthcare leaders should construct supportive organizational climates to increase nurses’ intent to stay.
