[2nd International Nursing Research Conference for the World Academy of Nursing Science - Presentation] Purpose:  The purpose of the study is to examine the levels of occupational stress/job satisfaction among the nursing teachers working in Japanese universities.
Methods: The subjects comprised 173 nursing teachers working in 17 Japanese universities. The questionnaire consisted of several job stress and job satisfaction scales developed by the National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) as well as questions on age, academic background, and experiences of harassment among others.
Results: The results showed that in comparison with other working females, the nursing teachers scored higher with regard to occupational conflict (44.6 scores), labor load (41.3 scores), variance in work lord(10.8 scores), and responsibility(11.1 scores). On the other hand, their discretionary power score (48.8 scores)was higher, and low skill underutilization score (8.0 scores)was lower. Against these backgrounds, their depression score (14.8 scores) was higher, and job satisfaction (8.2 scores) was lower. However, their self-esteem score (33.4 scores) was higher. With regard to the difference between the subjects and clinical nurses (Matsushita, 2010), the teachers? scores were even higher than the nurses where  control were concerned, and even lower as regards low skill underutilization. Although the nurses scored lower than other the working females (Haratani, 1999) with regard to self-esteem, the teachers scored higher than the other females in this category. Lastly, 1.4%of the teachers had experienced physical violence at work, 34.7% of them had experienced verbal violence, and 20.3% had experienced academic harassment.
Conclusion:  It was showed that nursing teachers have different level of occupational stress/job satisfaction from clinical nurses and other working female. Taking these results into consideration, we think that it is important to examine the factors related to occupational stress among nursing teachers working in Japanese university.
