There are many factors which affect nurse satisfaction level. This study aimed to identify the impact of nurse scheduling management on job satisfaction in Army hospital. This study used cross-sectional approach with total sample of 102 nurses. The sample was selected through stratified random sampling method with inclusion criteria of inpatient nurse with minimum pre-clinic level and at least 1-year experience. Pearson correlation, t-independent, one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), and double linear regression were employed to analyze data. The results indicated that there was significant correlation between the implementation of nurse scheduling management with all management functions on nurse job satisfaction level (p =.0001–.014). Organizing and controlling nurse schedule were the dominant factors affecting nurse job satisfaction level.
