In an attempt to account for morale and job satisfaction among 314 nurses, this study investigated the influence of work‐related and interpersonal variables. Morale on the unit was directly related to supervisor support, co‐worker relationships, and work recognition. Personal morale was accounted for by recognition, physical environment, the job itself, and pay. Job satisfaction was predicted by personal morale, work commitment, job clarity, work pressure, and innovation. Suggestions for improving nurse morale and job satisfaction are made.
