Abstract:
The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between supervisor support and job performance among nurses. On the basis of self-reported data from 718 Staff Nurses in Malaysia’s public hospitals, this study found that there is no significant relationship between supervisor support and job performance. This finding indicates that the supervisors were not able to provide the necessary support they need and indicates that the support given to each staff may seem not to work well with many staff. Thus, health care institutions must play a better role in coordinating and providing training for nursing supervisors in order for them to give their subordinates great support.
