Abstract

Purpose: The purpose of this study was to investigate the association between nurses' positive psychological capital, self-leadership, relational bonds, and organizational commitment, and to identify factors influencing organizational commitment. Methods: The participants in this study were 199 nurses conveniently selected at one general hospital in Seoul. Data collection was conducted between January 1st and March 31st, 2019, and was analyzed using the SPSS/WIN 23.0 program. Results: The mean score for positive psychological capital was 3.31±0.44, for self-leadership, 3.44±0.40, for relational bonds, 3.54±0.79, and for organizational commitment, 3.81±0.76. Positive psychological capital (r=.40, p<.001), self-leadership (r=.33, p<.001) and relational bonds (r=.51, p<.001) showed significant correlation with organizational commitment. Stepwise multiple regression analysis showed that positive psychological capital and relational bonds were included in the factors affecting the organizational commitment of clinical nurses. These variables explained 29.0% of organizational commitment. Conclusion: Findings indicate that it is necessary to build effective strategies to enhance positive psychological capital and relational bonds for nurses. Such strategies will result in improved organizational commitment.
