Abstract

The occupational image subcultures associated with the nursing role (professional, traditional, bureaucratic, and utilitarian) affected job attitudes and the job attitude-performance relationship, but did not seem to have a direct effect on job performance. Implications of these findings are discussed and a model linking occupational and organizational socialization to job attitudes and job performance is presented.
