Perceptions of organizational support and its impact on nurses' job outcomes
Author
Abstract
1 Problem Strong organizational support can promote a sense of well‐being and positive work behaviors in nurses. However, despite the importance of organizational support in nursing, this topic remains unexplored in the Philippines. 2 Purpose The aim of this study was to examine the impact of organizational support perceptions on nurses work outcomes (organizational commitment, work autonomy, work performance, job satisfaction, job stress, and turnover intention). 3 Methods A descriptive, cross‐sectional research design was adopted in this study to collect data from one hundred eighty (180) nurses in the Philippines during the months of September 2015 to December 2015. Seven standardized tools were used: the Job Satisfaction Index, the Job Stress Scale, the Burnout Measure Scale, the Work Autonomy Scale, the Six Dimension Scale of Nursing Performance, the Turnover Intention Inventory Scale, and the Perception of Organizational Support Scale. 4 Findings Nurses employed in government‐owned hospitals perceived low levels of organizational support as compared to private hospitals. Significant correlations were identified between perceived organizational support (POS), hospital bed capacity, and nurses work status. No significant correlations were found between perceived organizational supportand the six outcomes perceived by nurses in the Philippines (organizational commitment, work performance, job autonomy, job satisfaction, job stress, and turnover intention). 5 Conclusion Perceptions of organizational support were low in Filipino nurses compared to findings in other international studies. Perceived organizational support did not influence job outcomes in nurses.
