Abstract: 

Introduction: Nurses are the largest group of health care professionals in health systems. Nurse's shortage and turnover lead to big problems in care of patients, quality of care and treatment costs. The aim of this study was to determine assessment of some factors related to leave in nurses and their demographic information in educational hospitals of Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Sciences
Materials and Methods: In this, descriptive-correlative study, 350 nurses were randomly selected. Personal demographic questionnaire (11 items) and Anticipated Turnover Scale (ATS) (12 items) were used to collect data. Content validity index and reliability were measured by internal consistency (
a=0.80) and test- retest (r=0.81). Samples of 12 teaching hospitals and in different shifts were selected and questionnaires were distributed and collected at nurses rest time. Data was analyzed by SPSS-16.
Findings: Results showed that 88 percent of nurses were women and 92 percent had a bachelor's degree. Also they age range was between 57-23 and 48.3 percent of them worked in medical-surgical ward. Results indicated that nurses had a moderate intent to leave their work. In addition, between age with intent to leave (r= - 0.114) and work experience(r= - 0.158) with turnover, was a negative significant correlation. In addition, there was a significant correlation between organizational level and intent to leave (P= 0.007), shift and intent to leave (P = 0.001).
Conclusion: Given the high turnover of Iranian nurses than similar studies in abroad and according to previous research that showed a direct relationship between intent to leave and the actual turnover of nurses, need more attention.
