[22nd International Nursing Research Congress - Research Presentation] Purpose: 
  This study?s purpose was to investigate the causes of turnover among newly graduated Japanese registered nurses, and relationships between turnover factors and intention.
Methods:  
  Survey of 370 newly graduated nurses in hospital settings who had graduated from 4-year university courses. A 308-item questionnaire addressing turnover intention, related to job satisfaction, burnout and stressors was distributed. Data were analyzed by multiple logistic regression analysis. The privacy and anonymity of study participants was assured throughout the study. The ethics committee at Fukuoka Prefectural University gave research approval.
Results:  
  The questionnaire response rate was 19.5% (n=72). Multinomial logistical regression revealed six factors related to turnover: 1) adherence to guideline for occupational health and safety (OHS) were barriers "Turnover intention" (?=-0.33) and promoted "Job satisfaction" (?=0.28). 2) Pleasant working environment (?=0.26) and 3) supports by colleague promoted "Job satisfaction" (?=0.26, 0.33). 4) High risk of occupational accident (?=0.27) and 5) coping to difficult and irreconcilable demands promoted "Feeling of fatigue" (?=0.27, 0.35), while 6) communication to direct superior were barriers "Feeling of fatigue" (?=-0.33).
Discussion:
  It should be noted that adherence to OHS guidelines reduced turnover intention for newly graduated nurses. The most obvious explanation is that newly graduated nurses? concerns for safety management in hospitals were high. Therefore, safety management systems in hospitals need to be properly instigated by nurse managers.
Conclusion: 
  The factors to explain turnover in Japanese newly graduated nurses were explained in this study, adding to existing knowledge. We identified that nursing turnover intention for newly graduated nurses was explained in part by lack of adherence to OHS guidelines.
