Objective: In consideration of the current nursing shortage in Saudi Arabia, we aimed to investigate the association among perceptions of work environment, communication satisfaction, and intentions to quit nursing profession among nurses. In addition, we aimed to investigate the mediating effect of communication satisfaction on the association between nurses' perception of work environment and their intentions to quit nursing profession.

Methods: This predictive correlational study was conducted at one of the major hospitals in Saudi Arabia from January 2020 to March 2020. It included a convenience sample of 367 full-time registered nurses who completed three types of close-ended questionnaires. We used IBM SPSS version 24.0 to analyze the collected data. Regression analyses were used to test the study's hypotheses. All regression assumptions were assessed and confirmed. Significance for all tests was set at ≤ .05.

Results: The findings indicated an affirmative association between work environment perception and communication satisfaction ( = .764, < .05) among nurses. In addition, findings showed that work environment perception ( = -.187, < .05) and communication satisfaction ( = -.226, < .05) have negative impacts on the nurses' intentions to quit; indicating that as work environment perception or communication satisfaction increases, the intention to quit decreases among nurses. Further, a mediation effect of communication satisfaction on the relationship between work environment perception and intention to quit was confirmed.

Conclusion: This study presents a novel conceptual framework developed based on the literature about the predisposing factors for nurses' intentions to quit nursing profession. Our results suggest that work environment perception and communication satisfaction among the most contributing factors for nurses resignation. Effective communication was established as a crucial factor for establishing attractive and healthy working environment. Nursing managers can benefit by applying these findings to develop appropriate strategies to inhibit the shortage of nurses in Saudi Arabia.

In recent years, the field of environmental health promotion gained new prominence as awareness of physical environmental stressors and exposures escalated in Saudi Arabia. Although, several theories and conceptual models are routinely used for guiding health education and promotion interventions, they are rarely applied to environmental health issues in Saudi Arabia. This study theoretically reviews the educational and behavioral models for promoting health in Saudi Arabia. This study examines how education and behavioral models can reduce exposure to environmental health risks. In particular, this article describes the application of ecological theory with regard to its theoretical, analytical, and methodological challenges to future research in educational and behavioral studies. The implications of ecological theory are discussed for environmental health promotion. Ecological theory can further demonstrate the dimensions of health behaviors such as procedures for changing them. Health behaviors are also affected by many forces such as physical and social environments. This theory can assist planners in identifying the most appropriate target audiences, methods to improve change, and consequences for assessment. This theory is also important in including social, cultural, and physical factors that affect health consequences, which include factors such as social cohesion, behavioral patterns, emotional wellbeing, genetic heritage, and developmental maturation.
