Introduction: There are different factors that could be effective on nurses' turnover intention. The purpose of this study was to determine the correlation between organizational culture and nurses' turnover intention at educational and therapeutic centers of Hamadan University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This study was a descriptive-correlational research, which was done on 319 nurses using stratified proportional random sampling. The research instruments were a Demographic Questionnaire, “Denison Organizational Culture Questionnaire” and Cammann et al.’s “Turnover Intention Questionnaire”, the validity and reliability of which was measured by the content validity method and Cronbach's alpha. Data were analyzed by the Stata SE 11 software.
Results: The involvement component with Mean and SD (3.08 ± 0.55) was at a desirable level and other components were at a undesirable level. Nurses’ turnover intention with a Mean and SD of 8.76 ± 3.18 was at a low level and near the average. There was a reverse, medium, and significant correlation between organizational culture and nurses’ turnover intention (r = -0.362, P < 0.01). Organizational culture components, such as mission and involvement, predicted 13% of variance in nurses’ turnover intention.
Conclusions: Organizational culture was influential on the nurses’ turnover intention in educational and therapeutic centers of Hamadan University of Medical Sciences. Improving organizational culture by reducing nurses’ turnover intention enhanced quality of services and led to organizational goals attainment. Therefore, it is suggested for managers to take necessary measures in order to promote organizational culture of educational and therapeutic centers.
