Master's-prepared nurses from clinical settings across a Midwest state were surveyed to determine factors that signified career choice satisfaction or dissatisfaction. Evaluation and comparison of demographic data and correlation tests were used to assess and contrast individual factors to those of a recent national nursing faculty study. Individual factors were identified, which statistically and significantly correlated career choice to satisfiers and dissatisfiers, based on years in clinical roles. Findings in this study revealed similar age, gender, education levels, and anticipated retirement years for the sample group when compared to a more comprehensive nursing faculty study. Consistencies among groups linked motivation factors to professional fulfillment and purposeful work, whether the career choice involved clients or students. Motivators (intrinsic factors) provided greater value than hygiene (extrinsic) factors to pursue, stay in, or think about leaving their current role. Implications exist to support the development of models that identify, recruit, and develop future nurse educators for severe current and future workforce shortages.
