Abstract (Summary)

There has been an explosion of retail clinics nationwide in past five years, becoming the subject of many recent researches. However, the nurse practitioners (NPs), who occupy a central position as health care providers, have been largely absent from the debate on retail clinics. This study was conducted to determine the level and sources of job satisfaction of retail clinic NPs in California.

Twenty-eight retail clinic NPs participated in the study, which used the Misener Nurse Practitioner Job Satisfaction Scale (MNPJSS) and a researcher-developed questionnaire to measure their job satisfaction. The study found that the retail clinic NPs were satisfied with their job and that there was no significant difference between them and the NPs in general except for lower level of satisfaction in the area of social interaction and higher satisfaction in benefit and time. The value of this study is however limited due to its small sample size.
