This study examined the nature of the relationship of overall job stress, challenge and hindrance stress with job performance and turnover motivation among nurses (N=255) employed by three hospitals in the Gulf States of the Middle East. Multiple sources of data collection were employed. A structured questionnaire was used to collect data on measures of job stress, turnover intention and social support. Job performance data were obtained from hospital files. Multiple regression, curvilinear coefficients and moderated multiple regressions were used to analyze the data. Overall job stress, challenge stress and hindrance stress were all related to job performance and turnover motivation. The nature of the relationship between the measures of job stress and performance was primarily a negative linear. Perceived social support moderated more than eighty percent relationship between the measures of job stress and two dependent variables. Overall, the results of the present study supported the convergence instead of divergence perspective in cross cultural management research. Implications of the findings are discussed for future researchers in international and cross-cultural management.
