Abstract

OBJECTIVE

To examine the magnitude and determinants of job satisfaction in nurses working in Ministry of Health hospitals Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

METHODS

A modified version of the Minnesota Job Satisfaction Questionnaire is used to survey 500 nurses in 9 Ministry of Health hospitals in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. Three hundred and sixty six nurses from different nationalities responded to the questionnaire (response rate 73%).

No differences were found in overall job satisfaction according to gender, age, income, nationality, or marital status. Differences were found according to educational level. Also, job satisfaction is positively correlated with years of experience.
