dc.description.abstractEnglish: Job satisfaction as a phenomenon has been researched intensively over the years because both the employee and the organization benefits from it. On the other hand, job dissatisfaction as human experience has only recently been identified as a phenomenon that is not the opposite of job satisfaction nor a subdivision of job satisfaction. Job dissatisfaction as a phenomenon is a real life situation and human experience that needs to be researched. The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that lead to job dissatisfaction among nurses working in the critical care units. The research design was non-experimental of a descriptive and explanetory nature. The survey method was used to obtain the necessary data. The data were obtained by use of a structured questionnaire which was completed by all professional nurses and all nurse managers working in the critical care units of the private and public hospitals in Bloemfontein. The responses to all open-ended questions was analysed according to the method described by Tesch. All data was analysed on a nominal descriptive level. Grounded on the results, professional nurses expressed that they were motivated by selfactualisational values to work in the critical care units. According to the critical nurses most important job dissatisfiers are embedded in the human resource management process and as such have to be rectified to enhance job satisfaction. The managers on the other hand, indicated that factors in the general management process lead to the job dissatisfaction experienced by critical care nurses and as such need to be rectified. In the light of these findings, the recommendations for minirnisingjob dissatisfiers and enhancing job satisfiers were made. Further research into phenomenon of job dissatisfaction was also recommended.en_ZA
dc.description.abstractAfrikaans: Werksbevreding as fenomenen is oor jare intensief bestudeer omdat personeel sowel as organisasie daarby baat. Daarenteen is werksontevredenheid as menslike belewenis, eers baie onlangs as 'n eiesoortige fenomenen, wat nóg die teenoorgestelde van werkstevredenheid, nóg 'n onderafdeling van werkstevredenheid is, geidentifiseer. As fenomenen is werksontevredenheid 'n lewenswerklikheid en menslike belewenis wat nagevors behoort te word. Die doel van hierdie studie was om die faktore wat tot werksontevredenheid lei by verpleegkundiges werksaam in kritieke sorg eenhede, te ondersoek. Die navorsing is op "n nieeksperimentele ontwerp wat beskrywend en verkennend van aard is, geskoei. Die opname-metode is gevolg om die data in te samel. As navorsingsinstrument is 'n gestruktureerde vraelys wat voltooi is deur alle verpleegkundiges en bestuurders werksaam in kritieke sorgeenhede van private en openbare hospitale in Bloemfontein, gebruik. Die response op al die oop-einde vrae is volgens die metode soos deur Tesch beskryf, geanaliseer. Alle data is op 'n nominale beskrywende vlak geanaliseer. Gegrond op die resultate, word verpleegkundiges deur selfverwesenlikingswaardes gemotiveer om in die kritieke sorgeenhede te werk. Volgens die verpleegktmdiges is die mees belangrikste faktore wat tot werksontevredenheid lei, ingebed en die menslike hulpbron / bestuursproses en moet as sulks reggestel word om werkstevredenheid te bevorder. Daarenteen het die bestuurder aangedui dat faktore in die oorhoofse bestuursproses tot werksontevredenheid by verpleegkundiges lei en moet as sulks reggestel word. In die lig van hierdie bevindinge is die aanbevelings gemaak om werksontevredenheid te verminder en werkstevredenheid te bevorder. Laastens is daar ook aanbeveel dat werksontevredenheid verder nagevors moet word.af
