Abstract:

The proportion of Navy nurses who remain in the Nurse Corps after completing their obligated service has been relatively small. An increase in retention would be expected if Navy nursing could be made more rewarding by identifying and removing causes of dissatisfaction. The study sought to determine sources of job satisfaction and dissatisfaction among Navy nurses and to identify areas where constructive changes in the Nurse Corps might be made. Aspects considered most attractive by nurses in the total sample included interpersonal relations, travel, achievement, the work itself, and security and fringe benefits. Aspects considered least attractive were hospital policy and administration, Nurse Corps policy and administration, non-nursing duties, and supervision. Suggestions for change were most often in the areas of Nurse Corps policy and administration, hospital policy and administration, job duties, supervision, and achievement opportunities.
