The incessant strike, picketing among health workers in developing nations, is becoming a worrisome phenomenon in developing economy. This paper’s main objective is to examine the impact of job environment (work-family interface, climate, work roles, and job security) on job satisfaction and commitment among Nigerian nurses. A model was developed and tested using two hundred and twenty eight valid questionnaires, which were completed by nurses in the public hospitals in Lagos, Nigeria. Structural Equation Modeling was adopted to test the hypotheses and relationships that might exist among variables. The results show that strong relationship exists between job security and job satisfaction; and workers are not satisfied with the present condition of the job environment. The summary of the findings indicates a good fit, which implies that there is strong correlation between the tested dependent and independent constructs. However, decision makers should endeavour to make job environment conducive in order to earn workers’ commitment, which tends to increase organizational performance.
