This study examined the turnover of field instructors in relation to agency and university support, and to the intrinsic satisfaction from field instruction. As expected, both agency and university supports positively influenced the decision of field instructors to continue taking students. The intrinsic rewards that evolved from the content of the work were: teaching and sharpening practice skills; learning new ideas; contributing to the profession; and relieving the boredom of the job. As hypothesized, all the above variables correlated positively with the plans of field instructors to take students the next year. The quality of the student correlated with all the major variables of the study.
