Abstract

Aim This study was conducted to determine the effects of learned resourcefulness, work-life quality, and burnout level on the pediatric nurses' intention to leave work. Design and Method The study was conducted with 268 nurses. Data were evaluated by Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis. Findings In this study, 40.7% of nurses showed the intention to leave their jobs. Work-life quality, burnout level, and learned resourcefulness explained intention to leave the job in the rate, respectively, of 21.5%, 27.6%, and 12.1%. These three factors indicate that intention to leave the job is 41%. Practice Implication Nurse managers can reduce nurses' intention to leave the job by providing safe, comfortable, accessible, appropriate working conditions, increasing the learned resourcefulness level, and supporting nurses.
