Abstract: This study aimed to test influence of justice perceptions (i.e. procedural justice and distributive justice) on job satisfaction of nurses who work on private hospital in West Sumatra Province, Indonesia. The impact of job satisfaction on work motivation was also tested in the model. The theoretical model proposed procedural justice and distributive justice as direct antecedents of both job satisfaction and motivation. Work motivation was also hypothesized as consequence of job satisfaction. The data gathered using self-administrated questionnaires from 14 private hospitals with total number of 325 respondents. Testing hypotheses to confirm the proposed theoretical model was conducted using structural equation modeling (SEM) which was supported by AMOS application[2[36]]. The results of testing hypotheses demonstrated that the proposed research framework accepted withcriteria of AMOS. The results shown the work motivation is a psychological stage of individualize which initiated by feeling of justice and satisfaction on the job. The research concluded both procedural justice and distributive justice have direct effect significantly on nurses’ work motivation. Procedural justice was found directly to affect on nurses’ work motivation. However, distributive justice did not significantly influence nurses’ work motivation[19]. The finding also supported that job satisfaction significantly leads tonurses’ work motivation.
