LINCH, Graciele Fernanda da Costa; GUIDO, Laura de Azevedo  and  FANTIN, Simone de Souza. Nurses at a hemodynamics ward in Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil: profile and professional satisfaction. Texto contexto - enferm. [online]. 2010, vol.19, n.3, pp. 488-495. ISSN 0104-0707.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-07072010000300010.

The following cross-sectional study aimed to characterize the socio-demographic and professional profile of nurses who work in a hemo-dynamic ward and identify issues concerning the work and profession. Data was collected through questionnaire. The results were considered statistically significant if p <0.05, with an interval of 95.00% confidence. Sixty-three (63) nurses were eligible for the conclusion that the profile is predominantly female (90.50%), shows young nurses early in their careers, and short working periods in hemo-dynamic wards, with most of the nurses have completed an undergraduate course (77, 80%). Regarding issues related to employment and occupation, it can be seen that most of the nurses received training (58.73%), did not make an effort to go to work (85.71%), were satisfied with the work (85.71%), did not consider the day endless (84.13%), and were not willing to change their profession (90.48%). In all, the units have highly satisfied nurses trained to manage their work processes and to develop their and other team members' skills.
