Methods: This correlation study was done among nurses working in selected military hospitals over the summer of 2018. The demographic data questionnaire, Bar-On EQ Standard questionnaire and Dinner Life Satisfaction questionnaire were used to gather data. These questionnaires were distributed randomly among 384 nurses, and 325 completed questionnaires were analyzed.
Results: Of the participants, 59.7% were men. The mean age of participants was 28.07±4.1 years, and 88.6% of participants had bachelor’s degree.
