Abstract: Objective: To explore potential associations between nursing workload and professional satisfaction among nursing personnel (NP) in Greek Coronary Care Units (CCUs). Method: A cross-sectional study was performed involving 66 members of the NP employed in 6 randomly selected Greek CCUs. Job satisfaction was assessed by the IWS and nursing workload by NAS, CNIS and TISS-28. Results: The response rate was 77.6%. The reliability of the IWS was a=0.78 and the mean score 10.7 (±2.1, scale range: 0.5-39.7). The most highly valued component of satisfaction was "Pay", followed by "Task requirements", "Interaction", "Professional status", "Organizational policies" and "Autonomy". NAS, CNIS and TISS-28 were negatively correlated (p=0.04) with the following work components: "Autonomy", "Professional status", "Interaction" and "Task requirements". Night shift work independently predicted the score of IWS. Conclusion: The findings show low levels of job satisfaction, which are related with nursing workload and influenced by rotating shifts.
