ABSTRACT
Using Kerr and Jermier's (1978) taxonomy of substitute and neutralizer variables, the contextual model indicates that the staff nurse's education, group cohesion, and work technology substitute for the head nurse's leadership behavior by having direct and indirect effects on job performance. The hospital's administrative climate appeared to neutralize leadership influence.
