Abstract

The top priority of this study was to identify how nurses’ organizational commitment (OC) serves as a

mediating factor between Quality of Nursing Work Life (QNWL) and turnover intention (TI) among Korean

nurses. Three hundred thirteen registered nurses working in hospitals participated in this study. Mediating

effect analysis was conducted to identify the relationship between QNWL, OC, and TI. The results revealed

significant correlations between variables. OC showed a perfect mediating effect in the relationship between

QNWL and TI. The results suggest that nurses’ QNWL has a significant influence on the TI, which is

mediated via OC.
