Asian nurses who are collectivist oriented have become the majority of international nurses working in U.S. hospitals. Collectivists view themselves as members of a group. It is important for administrators to understand workplace-related factors that encourage these nurses to stay. This study examined the relationships among collectivist orientation, perception of practice environment, organizational commitment, and intention to leave. Results demonstrated that organizational commitment is a mediator of perception of practice environment and intention to leave. Implications for administrators are discussed.
