The data of this study were obtained by questionnaire method from a total of 658 healthcare personnel in three public and three private university hospitals in Istanbul, Turkey. Confi rmatory Factor Analysis (CFA) was applied to test the structure established after the exploratory factor analysis. Structural Equation Model (SEM) was used for testing hypotheses. Sobel test was used to validate the mediating variables. According to the Sobel test, the mediator eff ect of job satisfaction is found to be statistically signifi cant between self-seeking and turnover intention (z = −2.34, SE = .017, p < .050), the mediator eff ect of job satisfaction is found to be statistically signifi cant between inappreciativeness and turnover intention, and the mediator eff ect of job satisfaction is found to be statistically signifi cant between negative state of mind and turnover intention (z = −2.01; SE = .012, p < .050).
