In order to reduce the turnover intention of nurses in operating room, the main purpose of this study was to understand the situation of occupational fatigue and job stress of nurses in operating room, and to explore the correlation between job stress, fatigue and turnover intention.This study was a cross-sectional and exploratory study, in which the operating room specialist nurses with more than one year working experience in the hospital area were selected as the subjects. The research tools included: basic data, Chinese version of the Workplace Fatigue Scale, Work Stress Scale and Turnover Intention Scale. After collecting 93 valid questionnaires, the correlation between variables was analyzed by narrative statistics, correlation analysis and logistic regression analysis.
The results showed that nurses in operation room feel tired and stressed. There was a significant positive correlation between workplace fatigue, job stress and frequency of job stress. Workplace fatigue, job stress and frequency of job stress do not significantly predict turnover intention. Gender, age, education and professional variables significantly predict the turnover intention of the subjects. Females were less likely to quit than males, older adults, College graduates, junior college graduates, specialist nurses (NP) and primary care workers (N). The results can provide intervention management for the nursing supervisor in the operating room, establish shift system for the senior nursing staff who have adapted to the nursing profession, respect the willingness of cross-disciplinary training, and enhance the nurses'stress resistance to knowledge and technical categories of work. Reduce their work pressure, improve their fatigue, remodeling the operating room health and safety of nursing practice environment, in order to reduce the turnover tendency of nurses.
