Emmanuel Jr. Dayao Paragas, Jestoni Dulva Maniago, Cris Santiago Adolfo, Majed Sulaiman Alamri.

Abstract
Background: Despite the vast number of studies related to the student’s quality of life (QoL), only a few were explicitly conducted in the nursing academe in Saudi Arabia.

Aims: This study aimed to determine the profile and QoL of student nurses in a baccalaureate degree program in Saudi Arabia.

Settings and Design: This study utilized a descriptive cross-sectional design and was conducted in the Department of Nursing at Majmaah University, Saudi Arabia.

Methods and Material: The demographics and adopted Arabic WHOQOL-BREF questionnaires were used to collect the data among the 100 nursing students between October and November 2016.

Analysis used: The descriptive statistics and multiple regression analyses were utilized to describe the demographics, and to establish its relationship to the four domains of QoL.

Results: Gender, distance from school, and monthly allowance (p >0.05) were found to have no significant association with the physical, psychological, social, and environment domains of QoL. However, marital status (p <0.05) was established to have a significant relationship, but only to the environment domain of QoL. Specifically, being married decreases the environment domain by 11.21 than being single.

Conclusions: The marital status is significantly associated with the QoL in nursing students, but only to the “environment domain”. On the other hand, gender, distance from school, and monthly allowance were found to have no significant association to the four QoL domains.

Key words: nursing, quality of life, Saudi Arabia, social factors, students
