Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the moderational effects of self-efficacy on the relationship between job satisfaction and turnover intention of nursery teachers. Data were collected from 355 nursery teachers on JSS, TIS, and SES, which then were analyzed using correlation and multiple regression. The major findings of this study were as follows: First, job satisfaction was positively related to self-efficacy, Second, job satisfaction was negatively related to turnover intention. Third, self-efficacy was negatively related to turnover intention. Fourth, self-efficacy had moderational effects on the relationships between job satisfaction and turnover intention. The above findings imply that various programs should be taken to enhance the self-efficacy of teachers in order to reduce turnover rates.
