To explore the relationship between nurse–nurse collaboration and job satisfaction among hospital nurses and to test and refine a model explaining this relationship.
A secondary analysis of a cross‐sectional survey.
Registered nurses (N = 406, female 88%) in one university hospital in Finland and one in Norway completed a self‐administered questionnaire in 2015. Structural equation modelling analysis was used to analyse the relationships between collaboration and job satisfaction subscales.
The constructed SEM model fit the data well (RMSEA = 0.05, CFI = 0.985, χ2 p‐value > 0.1). The model strongly supported the hypothesized covariance between nurse–nurse collaboration and job satisfaction, while significant and positive relationships were observed between most of the subscales. The results suggest that there is a strong association between nurse–nurse collaboration and job satisfaction such that nurses are more satisfied when there is good collaboration and vice versa.
