DOI : 10.29228/jrp.688 This study aimed to investigate levels of work satisfaction and the use of emotional intelligence in job satisfaction among pharmacists. The sample comprised 82 pharmacists who were willing to participate in the study conducted within Erzurum, which is a province in Turkey. To collect the required data, three instruments were utilized: a socio-demographic data form, the Emotional Intelligence Scale, and the Minnesota Job Satisfaction Scale. Descriptive statistical analyses, independent groups t-test, one-way Analysis of Variance, LSD post-hoc test, and Pearson Correlation analyses were performed following the research questions. A moderate positive relationship is identified between total job satisfaction and total emotional intelligence (r=0.392, p<0.01). The findings, indicating a moderate relationship between total job satisfaction and total emotional intelligence scores among pharmacists, suggest that enhancing emotional intelligence could potentially lead to an improvement in their job satisfaction and overall quality of work life.
