Job satisfaction was assessed by theIWS and nursing workload by NAS, CNIS and TISS-28. Results: The response ratewas 77.6%. The reliability of the IWS was α=0.78 and the mean score 10.7 (±2.1, scalerange: 0.5-39.7). The most highly valued component of satisfaction was "Pay", followedby "Task requirements", "Interaction", "Professional status", "Organizational policies" and"Autonomy". NAS, CNIS and TISS-28 were negatively correlated (p≤0.04) with thefollowing work components: "Autonomy", "Professional status", "Interaction" and "Taskrequirements". Night shift work independently predicted the score of IWS. Conclusion:The findings show low levels of job satisfaction, which are related with nursing workloadand influenced by rotating shifts.||URI:||http://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/9535||ISSN:||00806234||Type:||Article|
