Introduction: Job satisfaction is one of the effective factors on the quality of the nurses' performance. Therefore, studying these main organizational variables has been considered by many researchers. This study analyzes nurses' job satisfaction in Hamadan educational hospitals.
Methods: This is an analytic-descriptive study that was performed on 304 nurses chosen via stratified random sampling of relative type in Hamadan University of medical sciences' hospitals. Data collection tools included Spector's job satisfaction questionnaires, descriptive statistics (mean and standard deviation), inferential statistics, independent sample t-test, ANOVA, and Tukey post-hoc.
Results: The results showed that the majority of participants 74.3%) had moderate job satisfaction level, 1.3% percent had high job satisfaction level and 24.4% percent had low job satisfaction level..Participants in areas of supervision (%51), co-workers (%51) and nature of work (%53) had high level of job satisfaction, in terms of promotion (%46/7) and communication (% 48/4) they had moderate level of job satisfaction, and regarding  payment (%69/1), contingent rewards (%79/6), operating conditions (%91/4), and fringe benefits (%79/6) they had  low level of job satisfaction. There was a significant statistical difference in nurses' job satisfaction based on their gender (t=2.8, P=0.005) and job experience (F=4.95, P=0.005). There was not a significant statistical difference in nurses' job satisfaction based on their age.
Conclusions: The results showed that nurses in the areas of payment, contingent rewards, fringe benefits and operating condition were least satisfied. Therefore, it is expected that the custodians pay more attention to economic components of nursing jobs and reduce unnecessary bureaucracy.
