Abstract

The purpose of this study is to explore the relationships between the empowerment, nursing performance, job satisfaction and turnover intention of long-term care hospital nurses. The subjects were 258 nurses at a long-term care hospital in B and U city. The data were collected from November 23, 2012 to January 21, 2013. Data were analyzed by SPSS win 20.0 program. The mean score of empowerment was 3.22, nursing performance was 3.78, job satisfaction was 3.25 and turnover intention was 2.87. Empowerment was correlated with nursing performance and job satisfaction positively, but correlated with turnover intention negatively. As a result of multiple regression, empowerment has 50.3% of the explanatory power on job satisfaction, 13.4% on nursing performance, and 21.9% on turnover intention. The significant predictive factors of nursing performance and job satisfaction were information and support in empowerment. In addition, turnover intention was resources in empowerment. These results suggest that empowerment improvement programs should be focused on developments to improve the quality of nursing.
