Job Content, Job Context and Personal Life were parsimoniously selected as the independent variables towards Quality of Working Life (QWL) among nurses at a General in Malaysia. There are there objectives of this study which are to describe the level of QWL among nurses at a General in Malaysia; to identify the relationship between job context, job content and personal life with QWL among nurses, and to identify how well the job context, job content and personal life explain the variance of QWL among nurses. It was found that averagely the respondents elicited towards agree answer for all items measuring the QWL concept. However, since there were obvious frequencies of disagree responses; it is advisable to the managerial level to give attention in scrutinizing each item. Job Content, Job Context and Personal Life have significant relationship with QWL among nurses at a General in Malaysia, and the combination of these three independent variables made up 55% of contributing factor towards the dependent variable. Out of the three independent variables, only Job Content and Job Context were significant. Thus, management of the General Hospital should give special attention to the Job Context and Job Content aspect in improving the QWL.
