Lindsay Sears: Predictors and Outcomes of Occupational Commitment Profiles among Nurses

  • Date/Location: Wednesday, May 19th, 9:00AM, Brackett 419
  • Title: Predictors and Outcomes of Occupational Commitment Profiles among Nurses
  • Committee: Bob Sinclair, Tom Britt, DeWayne Moore, Patrick Rosopa

Abstract:

Occupational turnover is a costly problem afflicting much of the nursing industry, and occupational commitment is a strong predictor of withdrawal from one’s profession. Traditional organizational research examines most commitment-behavior relationships from a variable-centered perspective, focusing on the relationships between constructs. The present study adopts a configural, or person-centered approach aimed at identifying and describing clusters of individuals who share a similar occupational commitment mindsets. The current paper focuses on the predictors of profile membership as well as differences in withdrawal from the nursing profession across profiles. The present study extends current literature by a) proposing and confirming the existence of several theory-based occupational commitment profiles and describing member characteristics within each profile; b) examining situational and personal predictors of profile membership; and c) investigating differences in occupational withdrawal intentions across the occupational commitment profiles. I propose to examine these questions longitudinally using Latent Profile Analysis (LPA; or latent mixture modeling) in an archival data set of Registered Nurses from different organizations in the Northwestern United States. The findings from this study are expected to provide support for configural approaches to commitment research and guide future research aimed at resolving the nursing shortage.
