Abstract

This study investigated work status congruence, work outcomes, and psychologic well-being among nursing staff. Data were collected from 744 hospital-based nurses using anonymous questionnaires. Nurses indicated whether they were currently working full-time or part-time and whether they preferred to work full-time or part-time. Two work status groups-congruent and incongruent-were then compared. Nursing staff having congruent work status were generally more satisfied and reported higher levels of psychologic well-being.
