Objectives: The COVID-19 pandemic’s significant effect on society has led to the death of many people. Nurses have saved many lives despite their high workload and infection risk. Nurses are among the medical staff who have long working hours and more interaction with patients during the COVID-19 pandemic. This condition can quickly change their quality of life (QoL). The study aimed to assess the impact of the pandemic on the nurses’ QoL in Iraq.
Methods: This research is a descriptive cross-sectional online study. A non-probability snowball sampling technique was used to select the study participants. A total of 1000 nurses in Iraq completed an online questionnaire on the “QoL during COVID-19 scale,” the Arabic version, from March to May 2021. The researchers used statistical methods of percentage, frequency, linear regression, 1-way ANOVA, and independent t test.
Results: The regression analysis revealed the COVID-19 impact on the nurses’ QoL (P=0.029) and the relationships between the QoL and demographic characteristics of the study samples such as gender, marital status, years of experience in the nursing field, as well as the personal protective equipment available in the workplace (P=0.00, P=0.01, P=0.01, and P=0.033, respectively).
Discussion: The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted the QoL of nurses. There are significant relationships between nurses’ QoL with sociodemographic variables such as age, marital status, years of experience in the nursing field, and personal protective equipment available in the workplace.
