Open Access Graduate Research Paper
This study was undertaken to explore the relationship of job-related stress and job satisfaction to the experience level of the graduate nurse in the critical care setting. A comprehensive review of the related literature was implemented. Job satisfaction and job-related stress were defined and found to be important to the practice of nursing in relation to job turnover and quality of patient care. Several strategies aimed at reducing job-related stress and enhancing job satisfaction of the new graduate in the critical care area were identified and discussed. Implications for further study and implications for educational practice were also discussed.
