This study explored the effect of organizational-based self-esteem and coworker’s relationship on job and career satisfactions among administrative staff of Nigerian higher institutions’ hospitals. Quasi-Experimental Research Design, Purposive and Convenience Sampling Techniques were adopted with a sample of 234 male and female participants. The participants were administered a structured questionnaire. Four hypotheses were tested using univariate analysis of variance and multiple regression analysis. Results showed that, organisational-based self-esteem did not affect career satisfaction (F (1,230) = 19.98, p < .05), and job satisfaction (F (1,230) = 154.28, p < .05). Coworker’s relationship did not affect career satisfaction (F (1,230) = 255.40, p < .05), and job satisfaction (F (1,230) = 20.72, p < .05). Organisational-based self-esteem and coworker’s relationship interactively affected career satisfaction (F (1,230) =144.28, p < .05), and job satisfaction (F (1,230) =270.96, p < .05). Pay, job-position, education, working-experience, marital-status, gender and age jointly contributed to career satisfaction (R2= .809; F (7,222) = 9.53, p < .05), while Pay (β = .239; t=10.17; p < .05), job- position (β = .251; t=9.72; p < .05), and working-experience (β = .168; t=8.27; p < .05) independently predicted career satisfaction. Similarly, job-position, education, working experience, marital-status, gender and age jointly contributed to job satisfaction (R2= .844; F (7,222) = 26.99, p < .05), while Pay (β = .506; t=7.02; p < .05), job-position (β = .343; t=8.39; p < .05), education (β = .165; t=9.22; p < .05) and working-experience (β = .262; t=10.08; p < .05)independently predicted job satisfaction. It was therefore recommended that, health institutions’ management should adequately address the issues of employee job and career satisfactions in respect of the effect of psychosocial factors involved.
