Therefore, the present study was conducted with the objective of surveying the relationship between the quality of life in surgery room nurses with the musculoskeletal disorders. Material and methods: The present study is a descriptive-analytical research which has been conducted on 112 individuals. To collect the information required for the study we made use of a questionnaire which included three parts, the first part of which pertained to the demographic characteristics and the second part pertained to the revised standard Nordic questionnaire and the third part was related to the quality of life standard questionnaire (SF-36). Finally, after the questionnaires were collected the data were analyzed by means of SPSS ver.19 software, descriptive statistics, Pierson correlation, Chi-square and independent t-test.
