Relationship of job satisfaction with perceived organizational support and quality of care among South Korean nurses: A questionnaire survey

Document Type



The International Hospital Outcomes Study found that organizational/managerial support for nursing has a pronounced effect on nurses’ job dissatisfaction, burnout and quality of care. However, these findings have not been validated in non-Western countries using the same study method and instrument.

The objectives of this study were to: (a) examine associations between job satisfaction and burnout, organizational support and quality of care reported by South Korean nurses, (b) identify the best predictors of job satisfaction among South Korean nurses through multivariate modeling and (c) compare findings of this study with those from the International Hospital Outcomes Study.
