Purposes: This research had two purposes. The first one was to test a proposition of King’s Theory of Goal Attainment. The proposition is “If goals are attained, satisfaction will occur in nurse-patient interaction”. The second one was to explore the factors related to both goal attainment and satisfaction of nurse interaction with the patient. Design: Correlational Research Design was used. Theoretical framework of the research was constructed based on theoretical substruction and the outcome of concept analysis. The research hypothesis was as follows: “The higher the nurse attains a goal, the more she satisfies the interaction with her patient”. Sample: The samples of the research were 1,180 Japanese nurses. Instruments: The research used three instruments: Scale of Nurses’ Performance for Goal Attainment (NPGA), Japanese Version of Nursing Job Satisfaction Scale (NJSS-J), and a questionnaire for demographic variables. Findings & Conclusions: 655 (55.5%) nurses returned their answers by mail after completing the three instruments, and 519 valid responses were analyzed. Result of the data analysis indicated that there was significant positive correlation between the score of NPGA and that of NJSS-J (r=0.395, p<0.00a), and thus the research hypothesis was accepted. This result suggested that the proposition of King’s Theory of Goal Attainment was adequate empirically. The result of the exploration of the factors related to both goal attainment and satisfaction of nurse interaction with patients identified 15 characteristics of nurses. These were age, income, responsibility for family, taking a course of continuing education, view of the value on nursing, degree of the perception for value on nursing, motivation of career choice as a nurse, reason for working as a nurse, intention of continuing present job, intention of continuing working at present hospital, having a role model, length of clinical experience, experience as a clinical instructor, satisfaction with own working ward, and perception of own aptitude to the ward. Through reference with literature, these 15 characteristics of a nurse were conceptualized into four concepts, which were attainment of the developmental tasks, goal directedness, empowerment for job, and career commitment. The further research, that is, to explore the relationship between the four concepts and both goal attainment and satisfaction of nurse in interaction with patient was recommended.
