Abstract: ABSTRACT Background: Job satisfaction is the affective orientation that an employee has towards their work. What makes a job satisfying or unsatisfying does not depend only on the nature of the job, but also on the expectations that individuals have of what their job should provide. Objectives: The main objective of this study is to compare levels of professional nurses and midwives job satisfaction and its determinants between functional and business processing reengineering (BPR) method of organization in Hawassa university teaching hospitals, SNNPR, Ethiopia. Methods: Institutional based cross- sectional descriptive data was collected by using selfadministered questioners complimented by focus group discussions from 122 nurses and midwives full time workers who were randomly selected via simple random sampling technique. Results: The analysis and interpretation of data was made using simple percentage count, mean score, and crude and adjusted odds ratio. Narrations of some qualitative data were also used. Concerning the findings of overall job satisfaction on both methods of organization almost half by half result were found, means the new method (BPR) couldn’t bring a significant change on nurses and midwives job satisfaction. Also half of the respondents were planned to learn out of nursing science in the coming five years because of hate of organizational affiliation towards nurses. This may cause shortage of experienced nurses and midwives which is a global problem nowadays. Conclusion: The study in this regard showed that a lot has to be done in the future to avert this situation. To this end, it should receive special managerial attention by finding out possible strategies, to strengthen predictors of intention to remain employed and upgrading their knowledge in nursing sciences, like employment practices that reflect moral integrity, incorporate clear communication systems, maximize employee involvement in decision-making, cohesive working relationships (cooperation with medical staff), appropriateness of the system for nursing, promote praise and recognition, and establish a shared vision and goals.
