Methods: This systematic review and meta-analysis is based on the Joanna Briggs Institute guidelines. A total of 850 studies on perceived mobbing levels, and 50 studies on the relationship between mobbing and job satisfaction were retrieved from databases which are Ulusal Tez Merkezi, DergiPark, PubMed, EBSCO Host, and Web of Science. The articles and dissertations were written in Turkish and English and published before 12.31.2018. The PRISMA statement was used to report systematic review and meta-analysis.
Results: The perceived mobbing level was found to be 1.867, and a negative and medium-level relationship was observed between mobbing and job satisfaction in nurses who work in Turkey (r = -.510, p = .000).
Conclusions: The perceived mobbing level, according to the meta-analysis, were found to show that nurses are exposed to a high degree of mobbing behavior in Turkey. The relationship between mobbing and job satisfaction showed a negative and moderate correlation. In other words, as the mobbing level increases, the job satisfaction level decreases.
