Abstract

EXECUTIVE SUMMARYIn prior studies, newly licensed registered nurses (NLRNs) described their job as being stressful.Little is known about how the hospital work environment affects their job satisfaction.A random sample of NLRNs were surveyed to assess the influence of hospital work environment on job satisfaction.Perceptions of greater job difficulty, job demands, and patient load were significantly related to lower job satisfaction.In contrast, being White, working 12-hour shifts, working more hours, and having more job control, greater professional tenure, and a perception of a better initial orientation were significantly related to higher job satisfaction.
