Description

Based on a survey conducted by the Nursing and Health Care Bureau of the Ministry of Health and Welfare in 2023, which investigated the recruitment and turnover rates of nursing personnel in 479 hospitals of different levels, the results revealed that the recruitment of nursing personnel was exceedingly challenging. The difficulty levels varied, with medical centers at 80%, regional hospitals at 67.9%, and district hospitals at 43.37%. Additionally, the turnover rates of nursing personnel were notably high, with medical centers at 10.21%, regional hospitals at 11.17%, and district hospitals at 14.52%. These rates all exceeded 10%, which means that, on average, one out of every ten nursing personnel resigned (Nursing and Health Care Bureau, Ministry of Health and Welfare, 2023).

This study aims to investigate the relationship between job satisfaction and retention intention among emergency room nursing personnel in a regional teaching hospital in Yunlin County. In the fiscal year 2023, the unit experienced an alarming turnover rate of approximately 82% among newly hired personnel. Therefore, the study intends to conduct further research and exploration into the job satisfaction and retention intention of emergency room nursing personnel.

The primary objectives of the research include examining the correlation between the demographic characteristics of emergency room nurses and their job satisfaction, the correlation between the demographic characteristics of emergency room nurses and their retention intention, and the correlation between job satisfaction and retention intention among emergency room nurses.

The study's subjects are nurses or nursing staff employed in the emergency department. The research is conducted through the distribution of questionnaires, and all responses are collected anonymously. The questionnaire is structured into three main sections: the first section covers demographic characteristics, the second section addresses job satisfaction items, and the third section focuses on retention intention items.

Upon collecting and encoding the data, the information will be compiled, and statistical analysis will be performed using Excel and SPSS version 25.0 statistical software to validate various research hypotheses.

The expected outcome of the study is a positive relationship between job satisfaction and retention intention among emergency room nurses, indicating that job satisfaction influences retention intention.
