This study investigates the mediating effect of authentic leadership style perception of nurses displayed by their supervisors in the relationships between the nurses’ perceptions on their supervisors’ political skill and, leader effectiveness, trust in their supervisors and their own altruistic behavior. The research model and the hypotheses developed for the purpose of examining the mediation effect have been investigated by questionnaires obtained from 316 nurses working in three private hospitals in Ankara who accepted to participate in the research. The research hypotheses of the study have been examined using the AMOS program and the Sobel test. According to one of the the findings, the nurses' perception on their supervisors’ political skill directly and positively affects their perceptions on supervisors’ authentic leadership style. The other finding reveals that the nurses’ perception of the authentic leadership style displayed by their supervisors directly and positively affects both their perceptions about the supervisors’ effective leadership behavior and the affect and cognition-based trust on those supervisors as well as their own altruistic behavior that they report. On the other hand, according to the findings, the nurses' perception on the political skill of their supervisors indirectly influences their supervisors’ leader effectiveness perception positively and significantly only through nurses’ perception on the authentic leadership style of the supervisors. In this case, it is understood that the nurses' perception of the authentic leadership style displayed by the supervisors has a role of full mediating variable. In addition, the nurses' perception on the political skill of their supervisors directly affects the nurses' evaluation of both the affect-based and cognition-based trust in the supervisors and their own altruistic behaviors without the variable named as "the nurses' perception on the authentic leadership style displayed by their immediate superiors" and indirectly, positively and significantly through this variable. Therefore, when assessed in terms of the the nurses participating in the research, the nurses' perception on the authentic leadership style displayed by their supervisors have the roles as a partial mediating variable in these relations.
