Background and Aim: Nurses’ job satisfaction has a main role in elevating the quality of healthcare services delivered to patients. The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between personality traits dimensions (i.e., neuroticism, extroversion, conscientiousness) and job satisfaction among nurses working in the hospitals affiliated to Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Science in 2011.

Methods: This correlational study was conducted on 300 nurses working in the hospitals affiliated to Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences who were selected through stratified random sampling method. The measures for data collection consisted of Job in General Scale (Ironson et al) and the revised Neo Big 5 personality traits inventory. The data were analyzed by SPSS 16 using Pearson correlation coefficient and stepwise regression.

Results: Findings showed that job satisfaction has a significant negative relationship with neuroticism, but there was a significant positive relationship between job satisfaction, extroversion, and conscientiousness (P < 0.01). Regression analysis indicated that among the personality dimensions, extroversion and neuroticism are two that can predict job satisfaction.

Conclusion: Considering nurses’ personal characteristics at the time of recruitment can lead to their higher job satisfaction.

Keywords: Job satisfaction, Neuroticism, Extroversion, Conscientiousness, Nurses
