The high stress level resulting from employee intra-organizational and extra-organizational interactions is a serious problem in reducing satisfaction and motivation level. Keeping in mind and for retaining excellent nurses and stimulating them to do their best to serve hospitals and take on future challenges in today's environment, the investigator is motivated for this study to investigate how organisational role stress among nurses could affect their job satisfaction. A descriptive survey design was adopted for the present study. The study was conducted in selected private hospital of Bhubaneswar. A structural modified organizational stress scale which was modified form of organizational role stress scale and another job satisfaction survey scale were used to find out the correlation between organizational role stress and job satisfaction. The sample size consists of 50 registered staff nurses of selected hospital and samples were selected by simple random sampling technique. The collected data were analyzed by descriptive and inferential statistics.
The study findings demonstrated that the rank order of factors of organizational role stress were personal inadequacy having 1st rank, role strength was ranked 2nd, role isolation ranked 3rd and role extension conflict was having 10th rank. The study also revealed that 28% of subjects were not satisfied at all with their job and 72% were satisfied with their job.
Level of education and role overload were extremely statistically significant where (?2=13.4, DF=1 and two tailed P value equals to 0.0003). The association between setting of work and role extension conflict was considered to be very statistically significant where (?2=15.2, DF=4 and two tailed P value equals to 0.0043). It was also observed that the correlation between organizational role stress and the level of job satisfaction was considered to be statistically significant in which (r = - 0.34, DF=48 and two tailed P value equals to 0.0157).
The research hypothesis was formulated after analysis. The findings of the study may help to increase nurses' job satisfaction and encourage them to stay at their work. This would avoid the vicious circle of high turnover which is wasteful of the organization's valuable human resources.
