Pearson product-moment correlations coefficients (r) were conducted to determine whether a relationship existed between the dependent variable organisational commitment and the independent variables, job satisfaction, organisational support, transformational leadership behaviour and level of education.
Pearson correlation coefficients were computed to determine the relationship between organisational commitment, job satisfaction, perceived organisational support, transformational leadership and level of education.
To view overall nurses' organisational commitment, a multiple regression analysis was conducted.
As indicated in table 3, the three measures of predictors, job satisfaction, perceived organisational support and level of education were most strongly related to organisational commitment.
The results from the regression equation for the standardised variables were as follows: Predicted organisational commitment score = 7.
This study provides new support to previous research about the importance of nurses' commitment and satisfaction and how these factors enhance organisational effectiveness and performance.
The findings indicated there was a strong correlation between nurses' organisational commitment and job satisfaction, r (55) = .
Although there remains a plethora of research on organisational commitment, there remains a scarcity of studies that have focused on organisational commitment and nurses in the long-term care industry.
Relationships among nurses' organisational commitment, job satisfaction, perceived organisational support, transformational leadership behaviour and level of education are numerous and varied in the literature (Lok and Crawford 2001; McNeese-Smith 2001; Mathiew and Zajac 1990; Price and Mueller 1981).
It was very surprising to discover perceived organisational support was one of the most salient independent variable, considering the different conclusions stated in the literature.
This study also indicated there was a positive relationship between job satisfaction and organisational commitment.
Transformational leadership behaviour also influenced organisational commitment in this study and it is consistent with the earlier research (Pillai and Wiliams 1998; Bass 1997).
