The effects of job characteristics and individual characteristics on job satisfaction and burnout in community nursing.
The aim of this article is to describe job satisfaction and burnout among two categories of community-based nurses (N=402) in the Netherlands taking account of job and individual characteristics.
Results show that these nurses are moderately satisfied with their jobs and the effects of burnout are average.
Further, community nurses are less satisfied and have experienced burnout to a greater extent than community nurse auxiliaries.
Both job characteristics and individual characteristics are related to job satisfaction and burnout.
However, job satisfaction is affected to a greater extent by job characteristics whereas burnout is more often a result of individual characteristics.
As research in this area is scarce and home care is changing radically, these results may be valuable in coping with change without losing sight of nursing's professional values.
