Objective: To verify the association between demographic and labor data, quality of life and work environment of nurses. Methods: Cross-sectional and correlational study conducted in a tertiary university hospital from January to June 2017 with 143 ruses through self-administered instruments. The relationship between scores of quality of life, work environment, and demographic and labor data was analyzed by adjusting multiple linear regression models with a normal response for each domain of the instrument. Relationships were statistically significant if p<0.05. Results: The work environment presented a mean value of 2.3 and the quality of life 14.1. The following associations showed negative statistical significance: work in special and closed units in the physical and psychological domains; promotion in the previous 12 months in the psychological domain; positively evaluated in the social domain; organizational support in the social domain; and working 36-40 hours per week in the environment domain. The positive associations were: satisfaction with the salary in the psychological and environment domains; control over the environment in the social domain; and working time of six to 15 years and >20 years in the environment domain. Conclusion: The scales presented favorable scores for quality of life and work environment. The associations showed statistical significance in hotter quality of life scores for those satisfied with the salary and with work time of over six years, and lower scores for those working in closed and special units, for 36-40 hours a week and who were promoted and evaluated positively in the previous 12 months.
