Abstract : Staff nurse job satisfaction should be a topic of prime concern to all nurse leaders and health care administrators. These nurses are the core of the work unit that deliver health care. Previous studies have shown that job satisfaction or dissatisfaction has a significant impact on the quality of health care provided. A variety of studies have been conducted to ascertain what environmental factors affect job satisfaction. The purpose of this research study was to determine if a correlation existed between medical, surgical, and oncological staff nurses' job satisfaction and their perceived leadership style of their head nurse at this particular institution.
