Background: Employees’ satisfaction and motivation are major drivers of job productivity, especially among teachers of healthcare providers such as nurses and midwives. Objective of study: To determine factors that influence teachers’ motivation in Colleges of Nursing and Midwifery in Borno and Yobe states of Nigeria. Specifically, to assess the level of teachers’ motivation and their relationship with the performance of the teachers in the selected colleges. Materials and methods: This descriptive and quantitative questionnaire-based survey randomly (stratified) selected 120 participants (teachers) from the selected colleges. Multidimensional Work Motivation Scale (MWMS) was used to assess the level and employees’ work motivation based on their psychological responses to different personal and organizational factors in the work situation and environment. Data were analysed using Statistical Package for Social Science Version 23.0. Results: Of all the study participants, 64 (54%) were males. Also, 77% of them were married while only 7% were single. Those between 36-40 years made the highest, 49 (41%) while those < 27 years were the least, 1 (1%). The majority of them, 85 (70%) had a bachelor’s degree, but a few, 3 (2%) had obtained a doctorate. Those with 6-10 years of teaching experience made the highest (34%). Of all the analyses made, the influence of infrastructure had the highest MWMS mean ± SD (29.22 ± 3.66), followed by the effects of Monetary rewards (26.77 ± 4.33), and the least was the influence of operational facilities (17.64 ± 2.81). The result of the study revealed that the level of staff performance in the study areas was relatively high, and the level of staff motivation was low. Conclusion: Based on the findings, prompt teacher promotion, lucrative payment and job satisfaction are the principal factors guiding the mind and perception of teachers as a vehicle for transmitting, generating and enhancing teacher’s job performance in selected colleges.
