The purpose of this study is to examine the relationship among organization commitment and job satisfaction in the nurses, and to analyze the predictive factors of the nurses? organizational commitment and job satisfaction. This is a cross-sectional and correlational study using a convenience sampling. Data were collected from two medical centers, two regional hospitals, and two local hospitals. The research subjects are nurses working in hospitals. Totally, 446 nurses participated in the study. The questionnaire included three parts: (1) the Demographic Inventory, (2) the Organizational Commitment Scale, and (3) the Job Satisfaction Scale. The findings showed that: (1) the total score of the Organizational Commitment Scale of the subjects is 49.9 (SD=7.94) and the standardized score is 67, indicating that the perception of organizational commitment of the subjects is in a medium level; (2) the total score of the Job Satisfaction Scale of the subjects is 66.59 (SD=9.78) and the standardized score is 67, indicating that the perception of the satisfaction is in a medium level; (3) organizational commitment and job satisfaction had a positive correlation; (4) the age and the seniority of the organization are effective predictors, which explain 38.8% of the total variance in organizational commitment; and (5) strive commitment, empowerment reciprocity and value commitment are effective predictors, which explain 59% of the total variance in job satisfaction. According to the findings, we suggest the administration chief should also build up the environment to promote the nurses showing their potential on nursing professional, developing the nursing characters and functions, and improving nurses? job satisfaction. In addition, administration chief should promote the nurses to show their organizational commitment and job satisfaction to ensure the efficiency of the organizational performance.
