Abstract

The aim of the study is to investigate the correlation between engagement and quality of life at work in nursing professionals, from a public hospital in the interior of the state of São Paulo, Brazil, at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic. We conducted a cross-sectional, descriptive, and correlational study, with nursing professionals between December 2020 and January 2021. We used the Brazilian versions of the Utrecht Work Engagement Scale and the Walton Model scale. The results showed that nursing professionals presented high scores for absorption (4.9) very high scores for vigor (5.2), dedication (5.6), and an overall score (5.2) for engagement. Most nursing professionals scored intermediate levels for fair and adequate compensation (51.9%) satisfactory levels for the other domains, and achieved the highest for social relevance (76.5%), for quality of life. Professionals with satisfactory levels of quality of life tended to have higher levels of engagement at work. Professionals were strongly engaged and satisfied with their quality of life at work at the beginning of the Covid-19 pandemic.
