Abstract

Introduction: Employees determine the success of an organization. Their satisfaction and commitment increases effectiveness at both individual and organizational levels. Objectives: Objectives were to find the relationship of nurses’ job satisfaction with their selected demographic characteristics; to find the relationship of nurses’ organizational commitment with their selected demographic characteristics and finally to evaluate the relationship between nurses’ organizational commitment towards their organization and their job satisfaction at Dubai hospital. Methods and Materials: The study undertook an exploratory design to gain an insight into 380 nurses’ organizational commitment and job satisfaction and their few selected demographic variables using standardized questionnaire and then examines the correlation between the nurses’ commitment and job satisfaction. Results: The majority of nurses (96%) were willing to recommend the organization to others. 65.2% with 21-25 years of experience verbalized high job satisfaction levels. 56.6% of nurses with experience between 0 to 5 years wanted to leave the organization. As experience increased above 21 years, more nurses (65.2%) wanted to stay. (p= 0.006).  Intention to leave organization rises between ages 26 and 45 and steadily falls thereafter until retirement (p= 0.00). Nurses from all age groups favored moderate levels of commitment towards the organization (90.8% for Affective, 80.8% for Continuance and 92.4% for Normative Commitment). Significant relationship was noted between Job satisfaction and Organizational commitment levels among nurses (p=0.006). Nurses’ total job satisfaction was significantly related to their affective commitment (p=0.001) and total commitment levels (p=0.006). Nurses’ total Organizational commitment levels were significantly correlated to their extrinsic job satisfaction (p= 0.006) and total job satisfaction levels (p=.0.006). Conclusion: Nurses’ job satisfaction was significantly related to their affective commitment and total commitment levels. Also, nurses’ organizational commitment was significantly correlated to their extrinsic job satisfaction and total job satisfaction levels.  Keywords: Nurses, Organizational commitment, Job satisfaction
