The purpose of this study is to assess the factors associated with the job satisfaction of nurse educators in Pakistan. For this purpose, an analytical, cross-sectional study design was used to conduct this study. Six private and six public nursing schools in Karachi, Pakistan were randomly selected to conduct this study. A total of 225 nursing educators were recruited in the study. Job satisfaction of the study participants were assessed by the 'Job Satisfaction Scale'. The data was analyzed by using descriptive and inferential statistics in statistical software SPSS version-21. The Logistic Regression statistical test was run for establishing the association between dependent and independent variables. P-value of < 0.05 was considered as 'significant'. The results revealed that the factors having strong association to the job satisfaction of nurse educators were; feeling competent in student's counseling, nature of supervision, teaching methods, authority, satisfaction with current posting, satisfaction as a teacher, physical environment, salary package, and organizational structure. However, other factors that have little or no association to the job satisfaction level of the nurse educators are in reality have confirmed cultural, societal, and psychological association with the job satisfaction level of the employees. Therefore, it is recommended that the study should be replicated by satisfying all assumptions of the Logistic Regression statistical test method.
