PURPOSE: To find out whether psychological capital has a mediating role in the relationship between job satisfaction and turnover intention on nurses.

DESIGN AND METHODS: This study is a cross-sectional descriptive study. 466 nurses participated in this study. Data were collected via paper-and-pencil format using Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire, Psychological Capital Questionnaire and Turnover Intention Scale.

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings revealed effects of poor psychological capital among nurses. The effect of psychological capital was statistically significant and it partially mediated job satisfaction and turnover intention.

PRACTICE IMPLICATIONS: Initiative sand training programs should be planned to improve nurses’ attitudes towards psychological capital levels.
