Nurses' job satisfaction: a proposed measure.

Author information

  • 1University of Iowa, Iowa City.


Thirty-three items originally developed to measure three dimensions of nurses' job satisfaction were subjected to a series of checks designed to determine the number of dimensions being measured and the reliability and validity of the measures of these dimensions. Although the hypothesis of only three dimensions was not supported, the eight interpretable factors that did emerge could meaningfully be placed within these three dimensions. The eight factors were satisfaction with extrinsic rewards, scheduling, family/work balance, co-workers, interaction, professional opportunities, praise/recognition, and control/responsibility. Internal consistency and test-retest reliabilities are reported, as well as checks for criterion-related and construct validity.
