Objective (s): This study aimed to investigate on job satisfaction among midwifes working in teaching and social security hospitals.
Methods: This descriptive study was performed on 275 employed midwifes at teaching and social security hospitals in Tehran.. The JDI job satisfaction questionnaire was modified partially; and used to collect data. Statistical tests were performed to analyze the data.
Results: The majority of midwifes were relatively satisfied with their jobs (80%). They were relatively satisfied with the essence of their occupation but their satisfaction with their direct supervisor, coworkers, position upgrading and income was low. The results showed that job satisfaction was significantly related to age, job background, type of university and type of recruitment, but not to marital status, monthly income, and organizational post.
Conclusion: The findings suggest there are several areas including supervising process that might improve job satisfaction among midwifes.
