The purpose of this paper is to examine the influence of work-family conflict and work-family positive spillover on job satisfaction among healthcare professionals. The sample of this study consists of healthcare professionals (e.g. registered nurses, medical doctors, pharmacists etc.) who work in public and private hospitals in Malaysia. This study involved a cross sectional design quantitative study. Data was collected through self-administered questionnaires. From a total of 642 questionnaires distributed, 503 were returned and 3 were discarded, left 500 usable questionnaires. Partial least square analysis revealed that only family-to-work conflict was negatively related to job satisfaction, no significant relationship was found between work-to-family conflict and job satisfaction. Work-to-family and family-to-work positive spillover were found to improve job satisfaction among the healthcare professionals. Work-to-family positive spillover showed stronger influence on job satisfaction as compared to family-to-work positive spillover. Practical implications, limitations and future research were discussed.
