Abstract: This study has investigated the role of psychological capital (PsyCap) in predicting intention to leave the job. Three hundred and forty paramedical and nursing staffs have completed the questionnaire. A research framework was created based on the proposed hypotheses, and path analysis was run using bootstrapping. The research findings confirmed that all the dimensions namely self-efficacy, hope, optimism and resilience have contributed to psychological capital. In the present context, resilience has shared more beta value toward psychological capital followed by optimism. Similarly, finding of the present study has confirmed the conjecture of negative impact of psychological capital on turnover intentions among paramedical and nursing staff. Hence, the present study has numerous theoretical, practical and research implications.

Keywords: psychological capital; turnover intentions; health professionals and hospitals; self-efficacy; hope; optimism; resilience.
