Abstract:
CASN Nursing Academic Leadership Conference: Low levels of job satisfaction among faculty members teaching in nursing education institutions have contributed to a nursing faculty shortage in Canada. A nursing faculty shortage impacts the number of nursing students accepted into nursing programs, which consequently, leads to a shortage of registered nurses. The purpose of this descriptive-correlational study was to describe the level of faculty job satisfaction using Motivation-Hygiene Theory, which describes the motivational and hygiene factors related to job satisfaction. Purposive sampling was carried out with faculty members teaching at 3 nursing schools in the province of Newfoundland and Labrador. The instrument used for data collection is the Wood's Faculty Job Satisfaction/Dissatisfaction Scale. Data analysis included: descriptive statistics, correlation coefficients, as well as multiple regression analysis. Overall, it was found that nursing faculty in Newfoundland and Labrador are a satisfied group. The factor Work Itself was the most motivating aspect for faculty while the least motivating factor was Salary. This study contributes to research in the area of nursing faculty job satisfaction and incorporates recommendations for change in the field of nursing education.
