Job Satisfaction Rating

  1. Hey, I'm wondering what the level of job satisfaction is of those of you reading this. If you feel like it, answer two really quick questions:

    1. What is your current level of job satisfaction on a scale of 1-10. I'd say a one means you are chomping at the bit to find greener pastures, dread going to work every day, hate it, hate it, hate it. About a 5, maybe you are wishing you were somewhere else, but wondering, "Is the grass always greener...?" Hate it some days, kind of like it other. A 10, you LOVE your job, no plans to leave, happy, happy to go to work every day. Etc, etc. You don't have to explain, just give a #.

    2. In what area of nursing are you working?

    Me: 6.5, cardiac surgery icu.

    Our combined average is just above a 7 so far- I didn't expect it to be that high.

    This week about 4.5. But I'm tired and feel I am not contributing much to anything. I do computer based education and coordinate our new grad program.
