Health-care leaders must address registered nurse job dissatisfaction in acute health-care settings to mitigate the critical nursing shortage. The quantitative research study with a correlational design determined (a) the extent that RNs perceive servant leadership behaviors in nonprofit, acute health-care settings, and (b) the relationship between perceptions of servant leadership behaviors and individual job satisfaction. A stratified sample of 313 RNs from two nonprofit acute care hospitals in the northwestern U.S. completed the Organizational Leadership Assessment (OLA) instrument. Results indicate a strong correlation between perceptions of servant leader behaviors and RN job satisfaction in acute health-care settings. Implications for leadership include recruiting and developing servant-minded nurse leaders who can create a caring and satisfying servant-minded nursing practice culture.
