Job satisfaction has become a critical issue for healthcare organisations in recent years, particularly in nursing, because of potential labour shortages, their effect on patient care, and the associated costs. Work satisfaction is a major factor in nurse retention and the delivery of high quality care, but rapid changes in healthcare services have placed more demands on nurses and this has increased the need for organisations to consider ways to sustain and improve nurses’ job satisfaction. To achieve this, they need to understand the factors that affect job satisfaction and dissatisfaction. This article reports the results of a literature review that was aimed at examining and reaching a deeper understanding of the factors related to nurses’ job satisfaction.
