Job satisfaction is critical in healthcare settings. This concept results from several factors, including workplace conditions and relationships, the organizational system of employment, and social, cultural, and economic factors (Mousazadeh et al.,2019). This research evaluated the nurses' job satisfaction level at the district hospitals in the second district of Ilocos Sur.

Descriptive-developmental research methods were utilized in this study. The purposive Cluster Sampling technique was used to determine the population, where a total of 97 nurses of any age or gender and with at least six months to a year of experience at the time the study was conducted were included in the criteria. A researcher-made survey questionnaire with a Five-point Likert scale was utilized to determine the level of job satisfaction. The weighted mean was used in determining the descriptive interpretation. Pearson's correlation was used to determine if there was a significant relationship between the respondents’ profile and the level of job satisfaction, as well as the relationship between job satisfaction with work content and work context areas.

Overall, nurses were generally highly satisfied with their jobs. Moreover, the researcher found that nurses were highly satisfied with the content of their work while moderately satisfied with its context. Specifically, they were highly satisfied with their workload while moderately satisfied with their benefits and rewards. Meanwhile, significant relationships did exist on specific domains of job satisfaction over their age, position, employment status, and years in service profile. Furthermore, a significant relationship existed between job satisfaction in their work content and work context areas.

Hence, a proposed Job Satisfaction Enhancement Program for nurses was crafted for adoption by the District Hospitals in Ilocos Sur.
