Although job satisfaction has been widely studied among registered nurses working in traditional health care settings, little is known about the job-related values and perceptions of nurses working in school systems. Job satisfaction is linked to lower levels of job-related stress, burnout, and career abandonment among nurses. This study evaluated the level of job satisfaction among a convenience sample of school nurses practicing in California. The Index of Work Satisfaction (IWS) was the instrument used. Although the sampled school nurses rated autonomy and interaction as the most important and satisfying factors contributing to job satisfaction, the overall findings indicated that school nurses are relatively dissatisfied with their jobs.
