Introduction: Men's health is more dependent to social issues and job problems than women. Normative expectations of masculinity can also put men at greater risk for health. One of the threats to occupational health is the resulting stress and job dissatisfaction. Job satisfaction is one of the most important factors in job success that increases efficiency, creativity and improves health in people. Considering the need for male nurses in the field of health care all over the world, paying attention to all aspects of male nurses' health leads to staying in the workplace and providing safe and quality services by them to clients. It seems that male nurses do not pay much attention to their occupational health due to many professional concerns such as shift stress and longer presence in the workplace, which leads to reduced quality of working life, reduced job satisfaction, Stress and depression in them. Therefore, the present study was conducted to determine job satisfaction and related factors in male nurses.
  Methods: The present study was a descriptive-analytical study and the study population included all male nurses working and studying in Ahvaz. Finally, 108 people were included in the study by convenience sampling method. Data were collected through a two-part questionnaire, demographic characteristics and Minnesota job satisfaction questionnaire and at two levels of descriptive (mean and standard deviation) and inferential (independent t-test, Pearson correlation coefficient and one-way analysis of variance) with Using SPSS software version 22 was analyzed.
Results: The highest age group was in the ages of 35 to 26 years (28.71± 6.68) and the lowest age group was over 45 years (3.7%). Job satisfaction score of male nurses (56.43) at the average level and the lowest score related to this area was opportunities for advancement (8.28) and the highest was the content of the job (13.04). There was a significant relationship between nurses' job satisfaction and body mass index (p = 0.020). The prevalence of exposure to occupational hazards in male nurses was: psychological (47.2%), ergonomic (21.7%), physical (20.8%) and physical (10.4%), respectively.
Conclusions: Implementation of strategies to create positive environmental changes such as satisfaction with pay compared to workload, balance between shifts and career advancement opportunities by nursing managers, leads to increased job satisfaction and reduced disability in male nurses. The workplace is a high-risk environment in which gender issues and organizational structures can affect occupational safety and health practices and expose men to significant health and damping risks (especially the Covid disease epidemic). Therefore, it is important for male nurses to pay attention to gender issues when formulating policies, designing and evaluating workplace health and safety.
