OBJECTIVE: For an organization to be effective, employees should regard themselves as citizens of the organization and exhibit organizational citizenship behavior. This descriptive study was implemented to determine the organizational citizenship behaviors of academician nurses and affecting factors.

METHODS: The study sample was composed of 71 nursing schools in Turkey. A 14-item questionnaire and 20-item "Organizational Citizenship Behavior Scale" were used in data collection. Data was obtained from academician nurses by post or by hand, and findings were evaluated based on 641 fully-completed data forms.

RESULTS: Research assistant nurses in medical science faculties or nursing vocational schools who were thinking about quitting their jobs exhibited more organizational citizenship behaviors.

CONCLUSION: The organizational citizenship behaviors of participants were not high: the most common behavior was ‘informing’ while the least common was ‘helping’.
