In light of current concerns over nursing shortages and productivity, voluntary turnover among hospital nurses in the United States has assumed renewed importance as a managerial issue.
This study examines the thesis that the social organization of work in hospitals is an important determinant of the voluntary turnover rate among registered nurses.
This perspective differs from previous work in this area in that both turnover and its determinants are conceptualized at the organizational rather than individual level, thus opening the way for administrative intervention to reduce turnover.
