The purpose of this study was to identify the effects of nursing organizational culture, organizational health, and job crafting on intent to stay among registered nurses. Methods: A cross sectional study design was used in this study. The participants were 210 nurses working at three hospitals in B city, South Korea. Data were collected from March 2 to 31 2018. A self-report questionnaire was used. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation coefficients, and multiple regression analyses with the IBM/SPSS 25.0 for Window Program.
Factors affecting intent to stay among registered nurses included relation oriented culture of nursing organization (β=.17, p=.029), organizational health (β=.16, p=.043), job crafting (β=.17, p=.031), and age(β= .25,p<.001), and these variables explained 25.0% of intent to stay (F=17.37, p<.001).
These findings show that there is a correlation between relation oriented culture of nursing organizational culture, organizational health, job crafting, and intent to stay among registered nurses. In order to increase nurses’ retention, it is important to establish a relation oriented culture in the nursing organization and to improve organizational health. Also, more attention should be paid to create positive job crafting to increase nurses’ intent to stay.
