This study aimed to analyze the job satisfaction of nurses in primary health care facilities. This study employed a quantitative descriptive design. The research used a cross-sectional approach. This study involved 226 nurses who worked in 15 inpatients primary health care. The sampling technique uses a proportionate simple random sampling technique. Nurse job satisfaction instruments assessed context factors and content factors. Nurse job satisfaction on context factor was in a good category by a big responsibility for nurse's work (55.2%), progress in work developed well (63.4%), nurses had the opportunity to achieve achievement (54.5%), nurses got great recognition for performance (58.6%) and felt their work is valuable (65.5%). Job satisfaction was supported by policy indicators, supervision, salary, interpersonal relationships, and good working conditions. On the other hand, nurses' job satisfaction on the content factor still needs to be optimized. This is supported by the job satisfaction of nurses on the indicators of responsibility, achievement, performance recognition that has not reached 60%. Therefore, job satisfaction among nurses in inpatient primary health care was quite good enough but still requires optimization on the content factor.
