Abstract:
A causal modeling non-experimental design was used to test the influence of professional nursing practice (autonomy, control over nursing practice, group cohesion, and organizational commitment) on job satisfaction and anticipated turnover. A sample of 79 active duty Air Force nurses provided the convenience sample for the study. The concepts of control over nursing practice and organizational commitment had a positive influence on job satisfaction. Job satisfaction and organizational commitment had a negative influence on anticipated turnover. Neither autonomy nor group cohesion influenced either job satisfaction or anticipated turnover. Higher level of control over nursing practice, stronger organizational commitment and decreased anticipated turnover were found with field grade officers in comparison with company grade officers.
