Abstract

The purpose of this article is to present preliminary findings of a research on job satisfaction in relation to a professional profile (the nurse), analyzing aspects of work that can be identified as antecedents according to their correlation with greater satisfaction as a whole. This research has correlated the ideal aspects of working with these issues effectively, and subsequently correlated to the outcome of this comparison (mismatch) with the overall job satisfaction. The survey showed frustration in the expectations of workers that have an impact on satisfaction, particularly as regards their ability to perform work consistent with their skills possessed, being informed of what happens in the company and the opportunity to have an estimated head.
