Career satisfaction among female nurses.
J Coll Physicians Surg Pak Jan ;14(2):72-4.
Objective: To study the personal characteristics, measurement of psychological well-being, work environment and its impact as determinants of career satisfaction among nurses. Design: Descriptive study. Place and Duration of Study: One public and private hospital in Islamabad and Rawalpindi each, from 12th February to 30th March 2001. Subjects and Methods: Nurses currently working in inpatient hospitals, for atleast one year, were given a structured, self-administered, anonymous and pre-tested questionnaire with both closed and open-ended questions. Results: Out of 261 nurses participating in this study, 210 (80.4%) responded as always or almost always, satisfied with their career as a nurse. Almost all nurses reported their work related stress as either severe or moderate. Over two-third of them reported as always or almost always being in control of work life. Conclusion: An overwhelming number of nurses in these settings are satisfied with their career; however, links between working conditions and levels of satisfaction among them are elusive.
