This study examined the relationship between Magnet status forces and job satisfaction. A survey was administered to compare the job satisfaction factors to Magnet status factors. The results are best described in descriptive statistics as nominal data and through Chi-square goodness of fit testing which gives a similar result to a single sample t-test. The results illustrated that Magnet forces do have an impact on job satisfaction as well as other factors. The biggest finding was through the comments of the participants that felt that while these factors strongly impact their job satisfaction, they are not upheld after the initial earning of Magnet status by the facility.
