Background: Job satisfaction is the most widely investigated job attitude. Job satisfaction is significant because a person’s attitude and beliefs may affect his or her behavior.1 if educator is satisfied in teaching then he will teach better but if he is dissatisfied he will not teach effectively. It is very important to measure the satisfaction of educators and students as it will project the quality of education. The findings will be definitely helpful for the educators as well as administrative authorities to make necessary changes where and when required. This will facilitate satisfaction for both educator and students, and then eventually enhance teaching and learning activities.2 Objective: To determine the level of job satisfaction of nursing faculty.
