[Research Paper or Poster Presentation] There are so many nurses who leave the nursing profession to work in other sectors and also those who leave their countries seeking greener pastures. There are many reasons which are cited by these nurses. Aim: This paper explores whether the organizational factors contribute to staff retention. Method: One hundred and eighty professional nurses who were working in public hospitals participated in a study, making a compliance rate of 75%. A case study method using both qualitative and quantitative approaches was used to collect data among professional nurses, chief professional nurses and union managers. Kanter's theory was used as a conceptual framework to look at the organizational factors that influence staff retention. The instruments used were the Conditions of Work Effectiveness Questionnaire, Job Activities Scale, Organizational Relationship Scale and the Revised Nursing Work Index. The organizational factors that were analysed were access to support, information, opportunities and resources. Results: Reliability of the instrument was at 0.800 Cronbach's Alpha. Nurses reported moderate access to organizational factors. Access to resources was a problem in all cases Conclusion: Professional nurses who had access to organizational factors were happy to stay in their organization.
