Title:
Factors Affecting Caring Efficacy and Job Satisfaction in Australian Registered Nurses
Abstract:
(41st Biennial Convention) Aim The purpose of this study is to identify relationships between socio-demographic factors, caring efficacy and job satisfaction in Australian registered nurses. METHODS A cross-sectional survey was undertaken. A stratified random sample of registered nurses, who were members of an Australian professional and industrial organisation, participated.  Descriptive and correlation analyses, one-way ANOVA tests, simple linear regression and multivariable analyses were conducted to examine relationships between the variables. RESULTS There were 639 respondents to the national survey. The majority of respondents (100%) showed positive caring-efficacy scores and 80.8% showed positive job satisfaction scores. An ANOVA found significant positive relationships between caring-efficacy and age, marital status and health sector (p < 0.01). Significant positive relationships were found between job satisfaction and specialty area, health sector and Australian states (p < 0.01).  Correlation analysis found age, years experience and years in current job, were all highly, positively correlated (r > 0.1: p < 0.01). CE was also highly correlated with age and years experience (r>0.1: p < 0.01). Caring-efficacy and job satisfaction were highly correlated with each other (r > 0.1: p < 0.01). Multivariable analysis results showed age, remained significant with caring-efficacy; specialty area and health sector remained significant with job satisfaction.  CONCLUSION Organisations may enhance caring-efficacy by providing programmes involving the four sources of information associated with self-efficacy to new graduates.  Future research should further examine these strategies and how they relate to caring-efficacy in nurses. The nursing environment including specialty area and the health sectors should be further investigated for relevance to job satisfaction.
