Abstract

Stress as a variable related to job satisfaction appears to assume an important role in society. The problem of the study was to determine whether there was a relationship between stress and levels of job satisfaction among nurse managers in hospital settings.

A correlation study examined the effects of the independent variable, stress to the dependent variable, job satisfaction. A sample of 35 qualifying nurse managers was selected from three hospitals. The Holmes and Rahe Social Readjustment Rating Scale for stress, and Brayfield and Rothe's Index of Job Satisfaction were used to measure the relationship of stress to job satisfaction. This study revealed that nurse managers in a hospital setting with higher job satisfaction scores did not have lower stress scores.
