Nurse turnover has become a continuous and increasing challenging problem in the healthcare system worldwide; and this became a priority that needs to be adequately managed. As a matter of fact, nurses are care givers and represent the frontline services that hospitals deliver to their patients, so it is an indispensable necessity to retain this workforce through both job satisfaction and job motivation. Providing the nurse workforce an appropriate treatment will surely lead to retention of talent that is critical to the continuity of the healthcare organizations. This research aims to assess the impact of Human Resource Management (HRM) practices mainly in relation to job satisfaction on nurses’ turnover intention, especially that Lebanon is one of the countries where the healthcare system is suffering from nurses’ shortage. This study uses a descriptive correlational study based on a structured questionnaire administered to 100 nurses within North Lebanon Hospitals. The collected data statistical analysis is carried out via the Statistical Product and Service Solutions SPSS-version 25. Results revealed that the absence of efficient HR practices forces nurses toward turnover decision. Thus, the creation of supported and motivated environment will positively affect the nurses’ decision to stay, and thus minimize the turnover rate.
