This chapter builds on the research on nurses' experience of work in the United Sates and Jamaica. The eight-country study reported on in this chapter, like the Jamaican study in Chapter 15, examined how clarity of role and system predicted nurse job satisfaction, but expanded the measurement model to also study the extent to which caring for self and the caring of the unit manager predicted nurse job satisfaction. Using structural equation modeling, the study revealed how these factors relate to one another and how they impact nurse turnover and sick time. This study confirmed the viability of the Profile of Caring as a construct appropriate for seven of the eight countries examined.
