The shortage of registered nurses poses a global health care crisis in the United States, which resulted in nurses’ inability to provide high quality care to patients. The purpose of the quantitative correlational design research study was to examine the relationship between the level of job satisfaction among novice nurses and intent to quit. A convenience sample of 216 voluntary study participants completed the Job Descriptive Index (JDI) and Intent to Quit (ITQ) survey. The results of the quantitative correlational research study using the Spearman rho correlations to assess the relationship between the five job satisfaction subscales and the time ITQ indicated two of the five correlations conducted were statistically significant, including pay on present job and opportunities for promotion. A significant relationship does not exist between work on present job, supervision, people on present job, and ITQ time. The correlation between pay on present job and time ITQ was statistically significant, rs = 0.60, p < .001. The relationship was positive, suggesting as pay on present job scores increased, time ITQ scores also increased. Nurses’ time intent to quit increased as pay on the present job decreased.
