Results from a questionnaire study on work conditions, job satisfaction, job influence, health and well-being, based on a representative sample of 3,500 Swedish nurses, indicate a high rate of overall job satisfaction.
High decision latitude, consistency between work assignments and education, as well as low sickness absenteeism did all associate with high job satisfaction, number of working years did not.
Compared to nurses satisfied with their jobs, twice as many sick days were found among those dissatisfied.
Greater job influence related to lower job demands, more stimulating work and skills development as well as more responsibility and involvement.
Anxiety and depression, intellectual satisfaction, job demands, job control and perceived general health explained 22% of the total variance in job satisfaction.
The study has identified some key factors influencing overall job satisfaction.
By focusing on these, job satisfaction among nurses should improve.
