Hospital RNs' job satisfactions and dissatisfactions.

Author information

  • 1VA Center for Practice Management and Outcomes Research, Ann Arbor, Michigan, USA.


In a survey addressing work-related stress, 1,780 registered nurses (RNs) discussed the many variables affecting their job satisfaction, including: why they chose nursing, patient care issues, nurse manager roles, salaries and benefits, and intent to stay in nursing. Their responses may be painful for nursing management to read. Yet, if new candidates are to be attracted and existing RNs retained, satisfaction of RNs with their jobs must be considered.
