Kaiser - Meyer - Olkin ) and Bartlett 's test Which measures correlations between variables as well as the Mann-Whitney U test  The significant differences between the answers of the nurses in the hospital studied , and using the statistical program (SPSS) The research reached a number of conclusions, perhaps the most prominent of which is that the approved distribution of the preparation of nurses to the various departments in this hospital is not appropriate to the needs of these departments, which has led to a high workload on some nurses, especially in the consultation and emergency departments, with the lack of appropriate incentives for nurses that match the tasks assigned to them. In addition، the wages granted to them do not equal the effort expended by them, and there are no opportunities given to them to develop their skills and complete their studies. All of this contributed greatly to the lack of motivation to work. The research recommended a number of recommendations, including the need to take into account the needs of each hospital department. of nurses and according to the number of sick patients present in each department in order to distribute the workload equally among all nurses in this hospital , in addition to reconsidering the rewards and incentives granted to them and granting them in a way that is compatible with the seriousness and volume of work within the hospital under investigation.
