Abstract

The main purpose of this study was to explore the status of Quality of Working Life (QWL) among hospital nurses in Isfahan, Iran. A survey study was conducted based on a sample of 296 hospital nurses using a valid and reliable QWL questionnaire. Hospital nurses reported low levels of QWL. The most important predictor of QWL was disturbance handling, followed by job proud, job security and job stress. Since QWL have strong correlation with turnover intention, it is very important to reinforce it by applying the right human resources policies.
