To add a paper, Login.

Using a large sample (n ~1100) of registered nurses, we use structural equation modeling (SEM) to test a recent (2005) theoretical suggestion of micro-meditational processes, based, in part, on March and Simon’s (1958) classic model of employee turnover. The results general support these new processes. We discuss implications for future turnover research.
