Objective: This study was conducted to determine the effect of nurses' life at job on job satisfaction.
Materials and Methods: The study was carried out at Agri State Hospital in A?r? between December 2017 and March 2018. The space of the research; consists of 231 nurses working at A?r? State Hospital. No sampling method was used. The sample of the research was formed by 135 nurses working at A?r? State Hospital and accepted to participate in the research. Personal Information Form, Nursing Job Life Quality Scale and Minnesota Job Satisfaction Scale were used as data collection tools. Number, percentage, independent groups t test, Kruskal Wallis
test and Pearson Correlation were used in the evaluation of the data.
Findings: According to our study data, 46.7% of the nurses evaluated the quality of work life as good and the average score of "Nursing Work Life Quality Scale" was found to be moderate (99.69 ± 18.98). The relationship between the opinions of the nurses on the quality of work life and the average of job satisfaction scores was found significant (p <0.05). Nurses' job satisfaction level average was 56.99 ± 13.49. The internal satisfaction levels of the participants were found to be relatively higher than the external satisfaction levels and general satisfaction
levels. There was a strong correlation between the job life quality and job satisfaction level of the nurses (r: 0.625) (p <0.05).
Conclusion: It was determined that the job quality of the nurses was moderate and the job satisfaction levels of the nurses increased as the job quality of the nurses increased. For this reason, it may be advisable to increase the quality of work life and to take necessary measures especially in units where the scores of the work quality qualities are lower.
