Purpose: This study was conducted to identify factors affecting nurses' organizational commitment of the JCI. Methods: This cross-sectional study was performed using questionnaire. Data were collected from 198 nurses who worked at one hospital from 5 to 14 May 2013. Tools were used general characteristics, perception(Yang & Choi, 2014), job stress(Park, 2005), organizational commitment(Mowday, Porter, & Steers, 1979). Results: The scores of perception, job stress, and organizational commitment of the JCI were 3.21/5, 4.08/5, and 2.65/5 respectively. Organizational commitment was significantly different according to degree. A positive correlation was observed between perception and organizational commitment. Organizational commitment was negatively correlated with job stress. The explained variances for organizational commitment was 26.3% and factors affecting nurses' organizational commitment were degree, perception, and job stress. Conclusion: These results showed the significant factors for nurses' organizational commitment of JCI. These findings can be utilized to development of strategies for reducing job stress, and enhancing perception of JCI.
