Objective: To identify the quality level of nursing work life and interventions for improvement. Method: A systematic review was conducted. Literature was gathered from several databases – Science Direct, Pro-Quest, EBSCO, Google Scholar, Scopus, Wiley Online, and Emerald Insight – using the following keywords: “quality of work life (QWL) and nurse”, “quality of nursing work life (QNWL)”, “quality of work life (QWL) and nurse and intervention”, and “quality of nursing work life (QNWL) and intervention”. Results: Our study demonstrated that studies of QNWL level from eight countries are low (28.6%), moderate (52.4%), and high (19%). Interventions for QNWL improvement include long-term care (LTC) team talks, empowerment models, integrating focus groups and round-table brainstorming, positive thinking training, stress inoculation programs, and participative teamwork and transactive memory improvement programs. Conclusions: Quality of nursing work life is mostly at a moderate level and needs improvement interventions.
