  • TITLE: Evidence-Based Practice and Job Satisfaction of Nurses in Long-Term Care

    AUTHORS: Hyunwook Kang

    KEYWORDS: Evidence-Based Practice, Job Satisfaction, Long-Term Care, Nurse

    JOURNAL NAME: Open Journal of Nursing, Vol.6 No.12, December 1, 2016

    ABSTRACT: Purpose: The purpose of this study was to identify the relationship between evidence-based practice (EBP) and job satisfaction among nurses working in long-term care facilities. Methods: The study used a descriptive cross-sectional design. A total of 146 nurses working in 6 long-term care facilities in South Korea self-reported their perception of EBP implementation, barriers to research utilization, and job satisfaction. Results: The level of job satisfaction was higher in nurses who were single, older, more experienced, and had a higher income. Lower perceived barriers to research utilization were associated with greater job satisfaction. However, there was no significant relationship between a level of EBP implementation and job satisfaction. Factors influencing job satisfaction included lower barriers to the organization and communication domains of research utilization, being unmarried and older. Conclusion: Decreasing barriers to research utilization may improve the job satisfaction of nurses working in long-term care facilities.
