by Cubias, Lucy E., M.S.N., California State University, Long Beach, 2013, 154; 1522623
Abstract (Summary)

This study examines how healthcare related stress in graduate nursing students impact satisfaction attainment. The factors examined in this study included demographic characteristics such as age, years in practice and employment status. Other factors examined include general health, perceived stress, salary, vacation, scheduled hours, flexibility, benefits and opportunities for advancement.

The tool used in this study was a demographic survey combined with a 67-item questionnaire developed by the researcher. The questionnaire was adapted from the Perceived Stress Scale (PSS 10), The General Health Survey (GHQ 28) and The McCloskey/Mueller Satisfaction Scale (MMSS). Forty-five participants took part in this study. Each participant was currently a graduate nursing student.

The study revealed that graduate nurses in the Los Angeles metropolitan area were less satisfied overall with diminished perceptions of health and increased stress particularly at 6-10 years of experience. The findings also suggest that work- related stress prevention programs would promote satisfaction attainment among nursing staff and potentially improve organizational outcomes.
