Background and Objectives: Lack of job satisfaction among nurses leads to decrease health care quality and the performance of hospitals. This study aimed to determine Job satisfaction among nurses in hospitals of Iran.
Materials and Methods: This study was conducted using a systematic review and meta-analysis approach. Eight electronic databases were searched and evaluated for original research papers published on job satisfaction among nurses. Finally, twelve empirical studies were reviewed using Comprehensive Meta-Analysis software.
Results: Based on random effects model, the mean and standard division nurses’ job satisfaction was 2/89 ± 0/08(95% CI 2/72-3/05%). The highest mean and standard division job satisfaction was recorded in private and public hospitals in Rasht in 2013, 3/59 ± 0/03(95% CI 3/51-3/66%) and the lowest mean and standard division job satisfaction was found in an educational hospital in Amol in 2018, 2/50 ± 0/03(95% CI 2/43-2/57%). Significant statistical correlation was observed between job satisfaction mean and age, work experience and sample size (P<0/05).
Conclusions: The mean job motivation among nursing staff in Iran was medium; thus, managers and policymakers should take serious measures to increase job satisfaction among nurses.
