Material & Methods: The data was collected, organized and analyzed in terms of both descriptive and inferential statistics.
Results: The study findings showed that a vast majority of them i.e. 35 samples (70%) had high attrition rate and 15 samples (30%) had moderate attrition rate. The results of the research showed that recommended counseling and social assistance will help and improve the quality of life of nurses and allow them to stay in the same hospital.
Conclusion: The nurse administrator should motivate the staff nurses by conducting programs for their good lifestyle and service education program should be organized for nurses to update their knowledge.
