2 Introduction  The concept “quality of worklife” is important and affecting the nurses life. It’s a multidimensional concept (Khani, Jaafarpour & Dyrekvandmogadam, 2008).  It affects different faces of nurses such as their productivity, patient satisfaction, quality of care, commitment and quality of their life (Rai, 2013).  Nurses are vulnerable to stress and burnout, there is inadequate support for them (Kovács, Kovács & Hegedûs, 2010). icCSBs 2015 January

3  Van Laar, Edwards & Easton (2007) Defined Quality of Working Life as “that part of overall quality of life that is influenced by work, the widest context in which an employee would evaluate the influence of work on their life” (p 325).  Job Demand-Control (JDC) model (Karasek, 1979) and job demand-control-support (JDCS) model (Johnson & Hall, 1988), both can have effect on QoWL among nurses. icCSBs 2015 January
