Title:
Working Conditions and Job Satisfaction of Staff Nurses
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) The purposes of this  descriptive research were to examine job satisfaction of staff nurses; and to analyze relationships and predictors of job satisfaction of staff nurses.  Research population consisted of 345 staff nurses who working in a tertiary hospital. Research instruments were Work Environment (WE) including supportive leadership, management style, working culture, safety environment, personnel policies, and professional development; and Job Satisfaction (JS) Questionnaires.  All instruments were examined for content validity and analyzed internal reliability. The Alpha coefficient WE and JS were .97 and .96, respectively. The data were analyzed by frequency, mean, standard deviation, chi-square, Pearson’s product moment correlation coefficients, and stepwise multiple regression analysis. Major findings were as follows:                  1. Job satisfaction of staff nurses was at good level (Mean =3.70, SD= 0.62).                  2. Work environment subscales:  professional development, personnel policies, management style, working culture, safety environment, and supportive leadership  were significantly and positively related to job satisfaction at .05 level (r = .627,.611,.598,.571,.551 and .522 respectively, p<.05). 3. The predictors of job satisfaction of staff nurses were professional development, working culture, safety environment, supportive  leadership, and personnel policies respectively. These predictors were accounted for 58.9 percent of variance (R2=.589, p <.05).                  The study equation was as follows: JOB SATISFACTION                = .211  + .192 PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT   + .180   WORKING CULTURE                                                    + .217 SAFETY ENVIRONMENT  + .177 SUPPORTIVE  LEADERSHIP  + .151 PERSONNEL POLICIES
