This was a qualitative research study which examined the impact that chronic stress had on the job satisfaction and career burnout in the Correctional Officer population. Using a sample of 71 Officers in the State of Maine, the author conducted a series of tests including use of a simple demographic survey, the Occupational Stress Inventory- Revised (OSI-R), the Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), and the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ). Results showed a significant correlation between both job stress and job satisfaction, and job stress and burnout, demonstrating a need for facility administration to have means available to help Officers cope with, and reduce, occupational stress. This thereby would increase the likelihood that Officers would remain at their respective Correctional Facility longer and be happy with their working conditions.
Job satisfaction and intention to leave among critical-care nurses in Atlanta, Georgia was examined to determine why critical-care nurses leave employment. The author used a correlational survey design and administered the Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) short-form and the Anticipated Turnover Scale (ATS), to critical-care nurses who were members of the local chapter of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses and employed by hospitals located in Atlanta, Georgia. A total of 108 surveys were returned equating to a 27% response rate. The results of the Pearson's r correlations determined that the critical-care nurse's intention to leave score had significant negative correlations with all three types of satisfaction including general satisfaction, intrinsic satisfaction, and extrinsic satisfaction. Using mediation analysis it was revealed that age and education do not exert a significant mediation effect on the relationship between general job satisfaction and intention to leave among critical care registered nurses in Atlanta, Georgia.
