Abstract

The relationship between commuting time and attitudinal measures of organizational outcomes has not been clearly identified. The present field study tested a model with an index of stress symptoms as a mediator between the two sets of variables. More than 600 nurses participated in a large personnel study that included questions on commuting time, stress, and several attitudinal measures. Results based on the use of the LISREL computer program indicated that, for nurses driving their own cars, stress acted as a mediator between commuting and attitudinal outcomes. Issues for further investigation and practical implications of the model are suggested.
