Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Taiwan has significantly fewer senior nursing personnel than many other countries, which can be attributed in part to the prevalence of interpersonal stress and same-sex conflicts that often arise in female-dominated workplaces such as nursing. This study explored how team reflexivity and gender-role attitudes influence the stay intent of female nursing personnel using a cross-sectional design. Results showed group-level team reflexivity has more positive impact on nurses’ stay intent via team-based self-esteem than individual perceived team reflexivity, but traditional gender-role attitudes weaken this impact. Our findings indicate mutual understanding and trust is crucial for nursing teams to function effectively.
