Psychosocial work environment and prediction of job satisfaction among Swedish registered nurses and physicians - a follow-up study
Scandinavian Journal of Caring Sciences, 09/23/2011
Jonsson S – The results indicate that the work environment has improved between 2002 and 2009 and that nurses experience their psychosocial working environment as more satisfactory than physicians. Social support, control, role conflicts, role clarity and qualitative demands were the best predictors of job satisfaction in 2002 and 2009. Quantitative demands did not contribute to predicting job satisfaction. Variables predicting job satisfaction are quite stable over time and are quite comparable for both nurses and physicians.
