This study was a descriptive study aimed to determine the relationship between nurses’ professional quality of work life and professional attitudes. The ability of nurses to work efficiently and productively depends on the development of a qualified environment that will support their professional practices. A descriptive cross-sectional study was carried out with 165 nurses working in a university hospital in the city of Samsun between 15 July and 15 August 2017. The total score average of the Nurses’ Quality of Life Scale was found to be 105.9 ± 7.5 and the median score of Professional Attitude Inventory was found to be 118 (76–159). A statistically significant relationship was found between some socio-demographic and working characteristics of the nurses, the Professional Quality of Life Scale and Professional Attitude Inventory scores (p < 0.05). The findings show that there is no relationship between nurses’ quality of professional life and their professional attitudes.
Keywords: Nurse, professional quality of life, professional attitude.
