Abstract
Background: In Saudi Arabia, educational demands may become more challenging for students, and expectations may be more competitive than in previous academic experiences. Understanding students’ quality of life (QOL) is important for the success of students and any academic institutions.

Aim & Methods: A cross-sectional study with a descriptive-comparative design was utilized to determine the QOL of 100 nursing students at the College of Applied Medical Sciences, Majmaah University. The Arabic version of the World Health Organization Quality of Life (WHOQOL-BREF) instrument was used in data collection.

Results: All nursing students had an average level in the four domains of QOL, which include physical health, psychological, social relationships, and environment. Female nursing students had a greater standard of QOL-than their male counterparts, particularly in physical and psychological health, and social relationship domains. However, in the environment domain, both men and women had the same level of QOL. Although female nursing students have a higher QOL score than males, the findings were not significant.

Conclusion: This present study shows a relatively good social dimension in the QOL of nursing students in this university. These findings suggest that administrators and faculty should always consider the various dimensions of QOL among nursing students in implementing their institutional policies and procedures. Educators should provide students with several opportunities to nurture their different skills, while considering QOL in setting both extracurricular and academic requirements.

Key words: Quality of life, Nursing students, Physical health, Psychological health, Social relationship, Environment
