To measure the importance of dimensions of job satisfaction 144 female registered staff nurses in four East Coast metropolitan hospitals were given an IS-item Likert-lvpe in-smaneni Results indicated that the traditional intrinsic/extrinsic dichotomy, which exists in elements of job satisfaction, did not apply The nurses perceived their job satisfaction in a more complex fashion, in lhal four statistically independent dimensions emerged with "relationship orientations" accounting for almost 24 percent of the total variance The study implies that previous considerations in job satisfaction for the professional may need to be reexamined in terms beyond the traditional intrinsic/extrinsic dichotomy.
