Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


This study showed that respondents were generally satisfied with their jobs. They rated the highest satisfiers as those that affected personal factors, especially those related to quality of care and respect. The areas that provided the least satisfaction centered on the extrinsic factors. These extrinsic factors should be the focal point for employers who want to improve the work environment and, hence, improve overall job satisfaction for NPs.
