Abstract

PURPOSE
This study was conducted to identify the influence of nurse manager and peer group caring behaviors as perceived by nurses on intention to retention.
METHODS
The participants for this study were 229 nurses who had worked for over 6 months in general hospitals located in J province. Survey data were analyzed descriptive statistics and t-tests, ANOVAs with Scheffé's post-hoc testing, Pearson's correlation coefficients, and hierarchical regression analysis.
RESULTS
The scores for "˜manager and peer group caring behaviors' and intention to retention were all at a moderate level, although the subjects perceived "˜peer group caring behaviors' as higher compared to "˜manager caring behaviors'. There were significant differences in "˜manager caring behaviors' scores by suitability for present working department and employment status and in "˜peer group caring behaviors' scores by suitability for present working department. The factors influencing nurses' intention to retention were religion, suitability for present department, clinical experience of over ten years, "˜manager caring behaviors', and "˜peer group caring behaviors'
CONCLUSION
To improve nurses' intention to retention, it may be necessary to alter the transfer and arrangement strategies of their working environments to better consider nurses' aptitude and competence, and thereby increase both manager and peer group caring behaviors.
