Aim: To examine how the hospital nurses perception of their work conditions associates with and predict their job satisfaction.
Background: Mounting evidence has pointed to an inseparable link between nurses work conditions and their level of job satisfaction. However, there is paucity of research examining nurses’ perception of their work conditions and its influence on job satisfaction beyond the western context. As no such study has been conducted in the region of Eastern Uttar Pradesh, India, therefore the researcher was prompted to design this study.
Methods: Exploratory correlation research approach was used to determine the relationship between work characteristics and job satisfaction of the nurses of tertiary level public hospital, Varanasi. This study involves 200 nurses working in various capacities. The structured questionnaire was administered personally to the nurses and filled questionnaire was collected. The instrument comprised of socio demographic variable and questionnaire on job satisfaction in relation to work conditions.
Results and conclusion: Multiple regression analysis was used to identify the significant work conditions influencing the job satisfaction of nurses. It was found that job stress, quality of care, workload, job competence, work relation and team respect were related to the job satisfaction of nurses
Implication for nursing management: Management effort should focus on improving nurses work conditions through detailed research planning, effective management, and removal of work constraints like heavy workload and job stress that effect nursing practice and by providing educational opportunities.
