Introduction: Spirituality at work describes employees whose job is satisfying, meaningful and purposeful. Spirituality at work would be accompanied with a meaningful life and job and a high-quality work-life for employees. This study tries to analyze the effect of nurses’ spiritual leadership components on their work-life quality. Methods: This paper is a descriptive cross-sectional study and an applied research. The population of this study comprised all nurses working in various medical wards of five hospitals in Tehran Province. Out of 300 nurses working in these five hospitals, 150 nurses, who were in their workplace when the questionnaires were distributed in the mentioned hospitals, were selected randomly. Demographic data and two five-point Likert questionnaires on spiritual leadership and work-life quality were used in this study to collect information. Data were analyzed with SPSS 18 as well as descriptive and inferential statistical methods and structural equations. Results: Analyzing the results of linear regression and structural equations made it clear that the levels of productivity (significance level: 0.064), vision (significance level: 0.045) and faith (significance level: 0.033) have had the most impact on the work-life quality, respectively and other variables of spiritual leadership have had a relatively weak linear, but without significance level, relationship with work-life quality. Conclusion: This study indicates that spiritual leadership has a positive and significant effect on work-life quality and altruism and membership, among other aspects of spiritual leadership, have the highest impact on nurses’ work-life.
