The purpose of this study was to investigate factors affecting turnover intention in pediatric nurses.
METHODS
A survey was conducted with 212 nurses working in pediatric units at 15 hospitals in Busan, K city. Data were collected from September 1 to October 31, 2014. and analyzed with SPSS PASW 18.0.
RESULTS
In Stepwise multiple regression analysis, factors affecting the nurses' turnover intention were emotional burnout (beta =.37, p<.001), relationship between nurse and doctor (beta =.20, p<.001), turnover plan (beta =.17, p<.001), and annual salary (beta =-.13, p<.001), and these variables accounted for 32.2% of the variance in turnover intention.
CONCLUSION
The findings indicate that the major factors influencing pediatric nurses' turnover intention are emotional burnout, cooperative relationship between nurse and doctor, turnover plan, and annual salary. Thus, in order to reduce pediatric nurses' turnover intention, it is necessary to develop intervention programs to prevent emotional burnout, the most influencing factor, and enhance cooperative relationship between nurse and doctor and to examine their effects.
