Abstract: The purpose of this paper was to explore the effect of HIV/AIDS on job satisfaction amongstthenurses in the public health sector of Botswana. Despite the intensive research on job satisfaction, it would seem dissatisfaction with work has reached critical levels throughout the society and that the nursing profession is no exception to this growing trend. The current study demonstrates that HIV/AIDS has a negative effect on the satisfaction of the nurses and this supports some of the earlier studies on job satisfaction. Therefore the exploration of the effect of HIV/AIDS on job satisfaction has the potential to aid development of strategies to improve the declining level of job satisfaction among nurses in Botswana.

Abstract: African governments tend to refuse to accept the obvious truth that dissatisfaction among teachers has contributed significantly to their inability to attain their educational goals at all levels. A disgruntled worker cannot put in assiduous effort at achieving set goals, especially goals whose levels of achievement are not readily obvious. The spirit underlying the natural pride of contributing to the growth and development of human beings is greatly robbed by the dissatisfaction among teachers. This study tries to determine what factors predict this dissatisfaction among teachers in community junior secondary schools in the South Central Region of Botswana. To determine these for teachers in the 55 community junior secondary schools in the South Central Region of Botswana, a validated 68-item questionnaire with 6-Likert-type options designed to measure level of job satisfaction and factors that influence it were administered to 255 teachers from 12 randomly selected schools in the area. A stepwise regression analysis of the resulting data showed that of the nine variables that combine to account for 57% of the variability in the level of teacher’s job dissatisfaction, refusal by parents to be involved in the education of their children accounted for 34% of such variance. The findings were discussed and recommendations made.

According to the research findings, there is no statistically meaningful difference between the teachers’ gender, position at the school, experience in teaching and their job satisfaction and social comparison levels. However, the research shows that school level, teachers’ marital status and age have affected the teachers’ job satisfaction levels. Accordingly, primary teachers’ general job satisfaction level is higher than secondary level teachers’ general job satisfaction level. Single teachers’ external job satisfaction level is also higher than married teachers’ external job satisfaction level. General job satisfaction level is the highest with the teachers at the age of 20-25, but it is the lowest with the teachers at the age of 31-35. There is also a significant correlation between teachers ‘educational level and their social comparison levels.
