This study examined the relationships among three potential sources of stress, namely, demands from patients/relatives, demands from doctors, and perceived job image, and several work-related outcomes, namely, job satisfaction, organizational commitment, intention to quit, and job-induced tension.
Respondents consist ofnurses from two tertiary-care hospitals in Singapore.
Findings of this study suggest that demands from patients/relatives, doctors, and perceived job image were significantly associated with nurses'job satisfaction, organizational commitment and job-inducedtension.
While demands from patients/relatives and perceived job image were significantly associated with intention to quit, the relationship between demands from doctors and nurses'intention to quit failed to reach statistical significance.
Implications of the findings are discussed.
