Conny Oktizulvia*, Dachriyanus Dachriyanus and Vionalisa Vionalisa

Aim: This study investigated the relationship among nurses’ job satisfaction factors and intention to quit in hospitals type C. Background: High nursing turnover is still becoming a problem facing many countries including Indonesia. The previous study in Indonesia showed that nurses more inclined to quit them and moving work to other hospitals or else. Methods: A cross sectional, correlational design was used. Data were collected by self-reported questionnaire and proportional random sampling of 183 nurses in three hospitals was conducted. The Job Satisfaction Survey (JSS) and a single question of intention to quit were used. Spearman rank correlation and multiple linear regression analyses were used to examine the data. Results: Half of nurses (51.9%) reporting that they “likely” and “very likely” intended to quit their workplace within the next year. The average of job satisfaction was found at 48.6% of nurses satisfied with their job. The job satisfaction factors were found to be significantly negatively correlated with nurses’ intention to quit. The communication is the most significant negatively factor associated toward nurse’s intention to quit. Conclusion: The results can be used as a basis for evaluation, early detection, and future planning for nursing managers and management. Results also highlight the need to emphasize positive factors to upgrade good communication between nurse’s and administrative management.
