Investigating the correlation between job satisfaction, autonomy, and self-efficiency among school nurses in Bahrain- a mixed methods study
To understand the relationship between job satisfaction, autonomy, and self-efficacy amongst school nurses in Bahrain a total of 142 school nurses in Bahrain were surveyed. Twenty-seven school nurses were also interviewed. Data were collected using structured psychometric tools and analyzed using Burnard’s (1991) framework. Conclusion drawn remarkably shows high level of job satisfaction among school nurses in Bahrain. Herzberg’s two-factor theory was used to determine the hygiene and motivation factors. The relationship between self-efficacy correlates with job satisfaction was not attributed to chance. However, three important factors that affect the job satisfaction of school nurses in Bahrain are training and education needs, orderly professional bodies, and healthy and productive work environments. A clear-cut role of school nurses should be given to overcome the society issues and provide beneficial learning environment to nurses.
