Job And Work Environment Predictors Of Turnover Intention In Long-Term Care Facilities
The purpose of this study was to examine whether job characteristics, the work environment, participation in quality improvement (QI) activities, and facility quality improvement environment predicted turnover intention in nursing homes. 6584 nursing home employees from seventy-six nursing homes in a midwestern state participated. A self-administered survey was used to collect the data. The results suggest that specific work organization factors, such as workload and work scheduling, can be manipulated to affect turnover intentions. The implications for retaining nursing home employees are discussed.
