Job characteristics influenced nurse commitments (path coefficient=0.190; t=2.409) and turnover intention (path coefficient=-0.183; t=2.107). Work experience influenced nurse commitments (path coefficient=0.208; t=2.231) and turnover intention (path coefficient=-0.153; t=1.964). organizational factors influenced nurse commitments (path coefficient=0.218; t=2.170) and turnover intention (path coefficient=-0.174; t=2.330).
