The relationship between work-family enrichment and nurse turnover

Abstract : Purpose - The central aim of this paper is to test a model in which work-family enrichment is associated with lower levels of professional turnover through higher levels of job satisfaction and professional commitment. Design/methodology/approach - The bootstrap procedure for estimating indirect correlations in multiple mediator models was used to test the hypotheses. Findings - The findings show that nurses experiencing high levels of work-family enrichment are likely to report lower intentions to leave their profession by virtue of their higher levels of professional commitment. Research limitations/implications - The research relies on a cross-sectional design with a single source of data. Practical implications - The research suggests that management should foster work-family enrichment since this appears to be linked to decreased turnover intentions. Social implications - There is a shortage of nurses in Italy and many other countries, which has negative consequences for high-quality nursing care and costs of the healthcare system, and the results of the present study suggest ways in which nurse retention could be improved. Originality/value - This study contributes to work-family literature by addressing the relationship between work-family enrichment and professional-related outcomes.
