Purpose: This descriptive survey-based study aimed to examine the degree of relational bonds, followership, occupational stress, and organizational commitment in nurses and to identify factors influencing organizational commitment. Methods: The research was conducted among 181 nurses who had more than 1 year of experience at a general hospital with 700 beds in Seoul. Relational bonds, followership, occupational stress, and organizational commitment were measured using a structured questionnaire. Data were collected from June 3 to June 28, 2021. Results: Relational bonds, followership, and occupational stress showed significant correlations with organizational commitment. Relational bonds (r=.45, p<.001) and followership (r=.55, p<.001) had positive correlations with organizational commitment, and occupational stress (r=-.44, p<.001) had a negative correlation with organizational commitment. Followership (β=.43, p<.001) and occupational stress (β=-.32, p<.001) were identified as factors affecting organizational commitment, and the total explanatory power was 41%. Conclusion: The findings of this study show that effective strategies are needed to enhance followership and reduce occupational stress among nurses, which could improve nurses' organizational commitment.
