This study aimed to determine the factors affecting the level of work alienation among nurses. The research was conducted with the participation of 182 nurses working in a university hospital. Data were gathered using a 23-question descriptive information form for nurses developed by the researcher following the literature review aimed at identifying nurses' sociodemographic and work-life characteristics as well as the Organizational Alienation Scale. Statistically significant differences were observed among the nurses in terms of their sociodemographic and work-life characteristics based on the Organizational Alienation Scale score. The level of work alienation was higher among single nurses, those who preferred their profession unwittingly, those who were not satisfied with their occupation, nurses who weren't satisfied with the unit they were assigned to, nurses who weren't willing to choose the department they worked for, nurses who did not belong to a nursing-related institution or association and who considered quitting.
