The United States is in the midst of a significant nursing shortage that is expected to be exacerbated by the forecasted exponential demand from the Baby Boomer generation. Results of studies conducted on nursing job satisfaction are not often made available to the public. A secondary data analysis from the survey component 2005 National Nursing Home Survey (NNHS), administered by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, was conducted. This study aimed to examine the relationships between perceived job satisfaction in nurses and how perceptions have had an effect on recruitment and retention rates. Pearson's Correlation of Coefficients was used to identify significant associations between the Dependent Variable of job satisfaction and a variety of Independent Variables including benefits, staffing and salary. Results of this study identified benefits, salary, work environment and interpersonal relationships to have a significant impact on the level of job satisfaction perceived by a nurse.
