The purpose of this study was to assess the level of nurses' job satisfaction in one hospital in Las Vegas, NV. Guided by Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs Theory, the study used the Mueller/McCloskey Satisfaction Scale to measure overall job satisfaction and its components. Results indicated that the nurses ( N = 52) were less than satisfied. The mean total job satisfaction score was 3.6 +/- .64 (possible range 1-5). Satisfaction with co-workers reflected the highest subscale mean (4.1 +/- .60) of factors contributing to job satisfaction (possible range 1-5). Nurses educated outside of the United States were significantly more satisfied in their jobs (M = 3.9 +/- .43) than nurses educated in the United States (M = 3.4 +/- .65). No significant differences in job satisfaction were found between age groups or between nurses working in specialty units and nurses working in medical/surgical units.
