Abstract

This paper aims to develop an extension of Job Demands-Resources (JDR) model to examine the influences of job demands and job resources on nurses' psychological and behavioral outcomes. Since job demands and job resources represent two important sets of working conditions in the nursing profession, the present Job-Demands-Resources and Behavioral Outcomes (JDRBO) model is an extension of JDR model. The working conditions originate from job demands are linked to unsafe behaviors, emotional exhaustion, psychosomatic complaints and intention to leave the nursing profession. The motivational factors originate from job resources are associated with depersonalization, work engagement, job satisfaction, organizational commitment and intention to leave the nursing profession. This paper attempts to make a significant contribution by offering a more holistic model for the hospital administrators and/or managers to evaluate the effects of job demands and job resources on nurses' behavioral outcomes and psychological well-being. This paper concludes with a discussion of research implications and future studies.
