Abstract

A study was conducted to compare nurses' work satisfaction and feelings of health and stress in three psychiatric departments differing in type of work. Subjects were 65 nurses. Questionnaires and interviews were used. From the results it appears that the admissions department receives relatively high scores on the work satisfaction variables. The short-stay department especially scores relatively negative on both the work satisfaction and health and stress variables. These results are explained in terms of the different work situations, stressing the differences between a dynamic psychiatric environment and a work situation where aims and expectations are not met. © 1988.
