Abstract

Background: Turnover is one the problems occured in human resources at the hospital. Nurses are the most health workers in health care facilities. High number of nurse turnover impacts on the loss of trained and skilled nurses which lead to decreased productivity in hospitals. The purpose of this research is to explain the relationship between nurse demographic (gender, age, education level, marital status, employment status, tenure, work unit) and turnover intention of nurs es in X hospital. Methods: This research used cross sectional design with sample size of 119 nurses who work in out-patient unit, in-patient unit, emergency unit, critical care unit, hemodialysis unit, neonatal care unit, and surgical unit. Sample is selected by simple random sampling method. Data were analyzed by using logistic regression. Results: Demographic data that influences on turnover intention are gender and work unit variable with p = 0.034 and p = 0.023. Turnover intention can be explained by gender and work unit variable of 27.7%. The accuracy of this model in predicting turnover intention is 69.7%. Conclusions: Female nurses have a higher turnover intention than male nurses and nurses working in places with high stress such as hemodialysis room also increase the chances of nurses to have the intention to leave the hospital. The results of this research can be used as a basis in determining nurse retention strategies, especially in groups with high risk of turnover intention.
