Embedding nurses in their jobs is associated with many positive results because they have to deal with varying patient needs and sometimes make close relationships with them. Having mentioned that, we have limited knowledge of antecedents and possible outcomes of job embeddedness. Accordingly, this study aimed to explore the mediating role of job embeddedness (JE) among this group in the relationship between Team-Member Exchange (TMX), Empowering Leadership (EL), and Perceived Organizational Support (POS) with Innovative Work Behavior (IWB). Data were gathered from a group of 800 nurses, who were working in fourteen different public hospitals in the northeast of Iran. Of 800 distributed questionnaires, 723 questionnaires were completely filled. Different statistical analysis methods, such as Confirmatory Factor Analysis (CFA), Pearson correlation coefficient, and Structural Equation Modeling (SEM), were used for data analysis. The results indicate the positive influence of TMX and POS on IWB through the mediating role of JE in this group. It is worth noting that the JE-mediated effect of EL on IWB was not significant.
