The purposes of this study were to examine relationships of structual empowerment, psychological empowerment, leader-member exchange(LMX), and job satisfaction; and to predict job satisfaction of staff nurses working at hospitals under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Defense, Thailand. Using Kanter's theory of structural empowerment, Spreitzer's theory of psychological empowerment, and Graen & Uhl-Bien’s theory of LMX to explain job satisfaction of 330 staff nurses who were selected by multi-stage sampling from hospitals under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Defense. Instruments used in this study were Structural Empowerment, Psychological Empowerment, Head nurse-Staff nurse Exchange, and Job Satisfaction Questionnaires with alpha coefficient of .96, .96, .96, and .93 respectively. Pearson’s correlation and stepwise multiple regression were used to analyze the study data. Major findings were shown that structural empowerment, psychological empowerment, and head nurse-staff nurse exchange were significantly related to job satisfaction. Head nurse-staff nurse exchange and psychological empowerment predicted 50.6% of the variance in job satisfaction whereas structural empowerment was not significant. These findings indicated that building good relationships and providing psychological support relating to work to staff nurses are important roles of head nurses to increase greater job satisfaction of their staff.
