In this study, we investigated the relevance of school nurses' concept of health and job satisfaction to their sense of well-being. We chose 326 school nurses currently working in elementary and junior high schools as the participants by using purposive sampling. Next, we prepared a concept-of-health scale, a job satisfaction scale, and a well-being scale to survey these participants. The three scales were developed based on the extant literature. The pretest questionnaire was tested using a pretest procedure (consisting of item analysis, factor analysis, and reliability analysis), and the results indicated that all three scales exhibited favorable reliability and validity. We used SPSS 17.0 to conduct related analyses, on the collected data, the Pearson product-moment correlation and the canonical correlation of which revealed that both the concept of health and job satisfaction exerted a significant and positive effect on the sense of well-being. For the hierarchical regression analysis, we controlled the background variables ＂number of years at work,＂ ＂marital status＂, and ＂salary＂ and determined that the concept of health exhibited high level of additional explanatory power on the sense of wellbeing. Job satisfaction also exhibited additional explanatory power on the sense of well-being, but affected well-being significantly less than the concept of health did. Based on these results, we offer the following recommendations: 1) improving school nurses can enhance their concept of health to improve their sense of well-being; 2) administrative authorities should review the salary and benefits of school nurses; and 3) prospective research can be improved by adopting our findings.
