Abstract


BACKGROUND: In the hospital, nurses are exposed to high levels of psychological stress. The purpose of this study was to compare the quality of life, psychological well-being, and emotional self-regulation of nurse and non-nurse women in Imam Khomeini hospital in Koohdasht City, Iran.

METHODS: This was a descriptive prospective causal-comparative research. The statistical population of this study was all the women staff of Imam Khomeini hospital in Koohdasht in 2018. A sample population of 100 nurse women was selected using convenience sampling method, and 100 non-nurse women were selected via random sampling method. The instruments used in this research were 36-Item Short Form Health Survey (SF-36) Quality of Life, Reef Psychological Well-Being, and MARS emotional self-regulation questionnaires. Data were analyzed using multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) (P < 0.05).

RESULTS: The MANOVA test showed a significant difference between quality of life, psychological well-being, and emotional self-control between nurse and non-nurse women (P < 0.05). This meant that nurse women in the studied variables were lower than their non-nurse counterparts.

CONCLUSION: According to the results of this research, it is suggested that in nursing mental health promotion programs, education should be considered in order to improve the quality of life, psychological well-being, and emotional self-regulation of nurses.
