Background: The retirement transition phase for the estimated 80,000–100,000 Australian Generation X nurses is due to begin in 2025, the year by which it is estimated that at least 110,000 nurses are required
for the viability of the Australian health workforce. The need to evaluate their intention to turnover will inform part of the solution to a potential nationwide workforce crisis.
Objectives: To evaluate the factors contributing to job satisfaction and their influence on the turnover intention of Australian Generation X nurses.

The article is based on a survey of 18-34-year-old Australians conducted via telephone, by Newspoll Market Research, in early 2001. The article shows that rather than 'Generation X' having homogeneous (or even negligible) participatory experiences, four distinct participatory typologies emerge. These four typologies are labelled as Activist, Communitarian, Party and Individualistic to reflect the clustered modes of participation. The article also explores the relationships between participation and the discussion of political and social issues."
