dc.description.abstract This study was designed to examine the relationship between job satisfaction, work stress, and work value orientation in a sample of nursing home aides. It was hypothesized that 1) organizational stress would impact job satisfaction in a curvilinear manner in such a way to form an inverted U-shape; 2) job risk, a second element of work stress, would also share the same curvilinear relationship with job satisfaction; 3) work value orientation would be significantly related to job satisfaction. Data were analyzed by conducting Curve Estimations and a bivariate regression. Results did not provide support for the hypotheses. Regressions analyzing work stress did provide support for a linear relationship between work stress and job satisfaction. Implications and limitations of the findings were discussed as were recommendations for future research.
