Background and purpose: Job stress is one of the main factors that reduce productivity in organizations and leads to physical and psychological complications in personnel. This study aimed to investigate the relationship between job stressors and quality of life in nurses.
Materials and methods: A descriptive cross-sectional study was performed in all nurses (n=394) working in Sari Imam Khomini Hospital. In this study, 196 individuals (155 females and 41 males) were selected by stratified random sampling. Expanded Nursing Stress Scale (ENSS) and World Health Organization Quality of Life questionnaire were used to collect the data. Statistical analysis was done in SPSS V20.
Results: According to findings, 79% of changes in quality of life were predicted by occupational stressors. There was a significant relationship between quality of life variables and job stressors (P =0.001). Also, the total mean score for quality of life was more favourable in morning shifts (37.77, P<0.001). The results showed that high levels of work-related stress would decrease quality of life and its reduction improves quality of life. 
Conclusion: Job stress in respondents had negative effects on some aspects of their quality of life. Therefore, nurse managers should build appropriate relationships with nurses and support them to reduce their physical needs and psychological pressures. Staff participation in making decisions could also be of great benefit in reducing job stress and improve the quality of life of nurses.
