Job Demands, Job Resources, Psychological Capital, Work Engagement


The level of work engagement of nurses has indisputable contributions to patient service in the health care sectors. The Job Demands-Resources (JD-R) model predicts job demands and resources related to work engagement but has not previously been tested in the specific context of registered nurses of Bangladesh using psychological capital as a mediator. The main objective of this study is to investigate the impacts of job demands, and job resources on the work engagement of nurses
of public hospitals in Bangladesh where psychological capital plays the role of mediator. A comprehensive review will be presented based on the most recently selected literature from an academic journal and relevant online platforms. However, as mentioned in the conceptual analysis, it will contribute to the literature by providing expanded knowledge of the job aspects associated with the work engagement of nurses and will confirm the importance of monitoring nurses' work engagement and psychological capital to improve patient satisfaction with nursing care in Bangladesh. Besides, the conceptual configuration of this study will help healthcare managers and policymakers of healthcare services that could serve as input for planning purposes. Furthermore, the conceptual model may possibly be able to assist nurses in practicing their ability with the responsibility to handle certain situations with the nursing staff coordinator's supervision.
