This thesis explores the causes of job satisfaction, alienation and anomie in the nursing profession. It focuses primarily on four independent variables; age, race, sex and work status (i.e.; full time or part time). The study sought to determine which of these four variables best predicted the levels of job satisfaction, alienation and anomie using bi-variate and multivariate analysis. Secondary analysis was the research method employed, using the GSS data. The results showed that age was most important in determining job satisfaction levels, while race and work status were important in determining levels of anomie. Future research is suggested to create new variables which will have better effects on the dependent variables. More interviews with a lot more nurses from a lot more varied backgrounds is also suggested. This form of analysis could be used to strengthen the results found and conclusions made in the cmrent study.
