Abstract :The aim of this study was to clarify the moderating effect of support from coworker and supervisor on the association between work-family conflict and psychological distress in nurse to prevent from intent to leave and promote their quality of life. Self-administered questionnaires were distributed to 2595 nurses at 24 hospitals in Okinawa, Japan on August, 2014. Of the 2311 nurses participated in this study, a total of 2012 nurses completed the valid questionnaires. The questionnaire consisted of as psychological distress as dependent variable, work-family conflict as independent variable, support from supervisor and coworker as mediating variables, and demographic and clinical variables as control variables. We applied hierarchical multiple regression and simple slope analysis to evaluate the mediating effect of support on the association between work-family conflict and psychological distress. The results revealed that the significant interaction of coworkersʼ support was found on the association between work-family conflict and psychological distress, but not on supervisorʼ support. The result of simple slope analysis shows that the nurses who have high work-family conflict had significantly higher psychological distress scores than those who have low work-family conflict in low support from coworkers. On the other hand, in high support from coworkers, a non-significant difference in psychological distress score was found between nurses who have high work-family conflict and who has low work-family conflict. This study suggests that coworkers play an important role in the mental health, and the support from coworkers is likely to buffer the relationship between work-family conflict and psychological distress on nurses.
