The Cronbachs alpha coefficient of the questionnaires were 0.85, 0.85, and 0.82, respectively. Data were analyzed by using descriptive statistics and Pearsons product moment correlation statistics.

Results: The result of the study showed that nurses perceived a moderate level of organizational commitment (M = 3.57, SD = 0.48), supervisory support (M = 3.9, SD = 0.48), and job satisfaction (M = 4.06, SD = 0.51). There was a moderate positive significant correlation between organizational commitment and job satisfaction (r = 0.32, p < 0.01) and moderate positive significant correlation between supervisory support and job satisfaction (r = 0.26, p < 0.01).
