Abstract

Purpose
This study aimed to identify the effects of preceptors' teaching behavior, resilience, and organizational socialization on new graduate nurses' intention to stay.
Methods
Data were collected from 167 new graduate nurses working at a university hospital for a period of three months to one year and analyzed using SPSS 24.0, PROCESS Macro ver. 3.5.
Results
The results show that preceptors' teaching behavior, resilience, and organizational socialization had strong correlations with new graduate nurses' intention to stay. Preceptors' teaching behavior directly affected new graduate nurses' resilience and intention to stay. However, the results showed that preceptors' teaching behavior did not affect organizational socialization. Resilience directly affected organizational socialization and intention to stay, and had a simple mediation effect between preceptors' teaching behavior and intention to stay. Moreover, resilience and organizational socialization were found to be significant mediators between preceptors' teaching behavior and intention to stay.
Conclusion
The results suggest that preceptors' teaching behavior is a key factor that strengthens new graduate nurses' intention to stay, as it promotes successful organizational socialization by improving their resilience and helping them overcome transition shock.
