[Scientific session research presentation] Filipino Registered Nurses (RNs) make up the majority (>50%) of foreign-educated nurses in the United States (US). The limited literature about Filipino RNs reveal that the majority are women, were born and educated in the Philippines, work full-time, have baccalaureate degrees or higher, and have expressed a positive inclination toward their current job. Although they are an integral part of the nursing workforce in this country, very little is known about the influence of acculturation and some individual variables on their perceptions of job satisfaction. Using a descriptive design, a study was conducted to determine the effects of acculturation, age, and length of US residency on perceptions of job satisfaction among a convenience sample of Filipino RNs (n=96) who attended the Eastern Regional conference of the Philippine Nurses Association of America (PNAA) in Baltimore, Maryland. Acculturation was measured using A Short Acculturation Scale for Filipino Americans (ASASFA) while Job Satisfaction was measured using Part B of Stamps and Piedmonte?s Index of Work Satisfaction (IWS) Scale; information about the respondents' age and length of US residency was obtained using a demographic questionnaire. Findings of the study revealed that acculturation, age, and length of US residency significantly predicted job satisfaction among this group of nurses. Results of this study should alert health care agencies and administrators who hire recent Filipino nurse immigrants of the need to develop effective acculturation programs to assist them in their transition into the US health care system and the mainstream society.
