Background: Job satisfaction among nurses is a global concern for its crucial impact on nursing shortage and quality of care. Missed nursing care defined as nurses' decision to omit or delay aspects of patient care activities is hypothesized to influence nurses' job satisfaction. Aim: The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between missed nursing care and nurses' job satisfaction. Materials and Methods: The study used a cross-sectional design, and data were collected using the MISSCARE survey and Nurses' Work Satisfaction Scale from 205 randomly selected nurses working in the medical–surgical units of four tertiary care hospitals in India. Data were analyzed using IBM SPSS version 23. Results: Nurses' job satisfaction was significantly related to missed nursing care, hospital types, and education which together explained 27% of the variance in nurses' job satisfaction. Conclusion: Focused strategies to decrease missed nursing care can improve job satisfaction among nurses. Nurse leaders can use missed nursing care as a process indicator to assess and predict nurses' job satisfaction.
