The hospital is an organization in the service sector with nurses as the main resource. Increasing the commitment of the nurses was one of the ways to retain nurses. This cross-sectional study explained nurse’s foci of commitment model to decrease turnover intention. Variables in this study included nurse characteristics, job characteristics, work experience, organizational factors, nurse commitment, and turnover intention. The population was nurses who have worked in islamic hospital in Surabaya, Indonesia. The 119 nurses selected as sample based on simple random sampling. Data collected using questionnaires and analyzed using partial least squares (PLS). Nurse characteristics influenced nurse commitments (path coefficient=0.252; t=2.953) and turnover intention (path coefficient=-0.239; t=2.458). Job characteristics influenced nurse commitments (path coefficient=0.190; t=2.409) and turnover intention (path coefficient=-0.183; t=2.107). Work experience influenced nurse commitments (path coefficient=0.208; t=2.231) and turnover intention (path coefficient=-0.153; t=1.964). organizational factors influenced nurse commitments (path coefficient=0.218; t=2.170) and turnover intention (path coefficient=-0.174; t=2.330). Nurse commitment influenced turnover intention (path coefficient=-0.226; t=2.084). The nurse's commitment as moderate these factors in reducing turnover intention. The influence of job satisfaction, nurse commitment, and perceived organizational support to turnover intention needs further research.
