Abstract (Summary)

A recurring trend influencing healthcare capital and human resource management was unending staff shortages because many healthcare organizations experienced continuing difficulties in recruiting and retaining skilled healthcare professionals. High turnover rate of nurses has been attributed to rising frustration over lack of managerial support and ineffective or coercive managerial style and not because of problems with the hospital management or for patient care issues. The focus of the quantitative correlational study was to examine the relationship between certified inpatient obstetric nurses’ perceptions of the nurse managers’ leadership style on the level of job satisfaction and organizational commitment in acute care hospitals in Illinois. A statistically significant correlation was noted between the five transformational leadership measures and level of job satisfaction and organizational commitment of survey respondents. The implications for nursing leadership were discussed.
