The quality of nursing care is closely related to colleague solidarity status and the job satisfaction level of nurses. The researchers conducted this study as a descriptive and cross-sectional study to determine the impact of colleague solidarity on job satisfaction in nurses. The researchers conducted the study with the participation of 318 nurses working in a university hospital and volunteering to take part in the study. In the study, the researchers collected data using a 21-question survey. The researchers used percentage calculation, ANOVA test, Kruskal-Wallis’s test, Mann-Whitney U test, and t-test for data analysis. In the study, the researchers determined that the nurses had a high level of colleague solidarity and their overall job satisfaction was neutral. In line with the findings, the researchers recommended that in-service training programs that might increase the job satisfaction level of nurses be organized.
