Background: Quality of work life (QWL) influences the performance and commitment of employees in health-care organizations. Objectives: This study aimed at assessing the QWL and its associated factors among nurses in a tertiary care hospital in Al-Madinah, Saudi Arabia. Methods: This cross-sectional study was conducted among 212 nurses at Madinah Cardiac Center in Al-Madinah in Saudi Arabia using the Brooks and Anderson's quality of nursing work life survey and the stress subscale of the Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale. The t-test, analysis of variance, Pearson correlation coefficient, and multiple linear regression were conducted to analyze the data. Results: Most participants (65.1%) had high QWL and one-third (33%) had severe stress. Factors that independently predicted QWL were monthly income (P = 0.007), number of working hours per week (P = 0.041), and stress level (P = 0.001). Conclusion: Most participants had high QWL. Minimizing stress and improving the work environment are necessary to improve the QWL of nurses.
