Abstract: The result of the study which indicates that, women nurses of private hospitals in Ghana context are able to support their hobbies, household activities, study; care for self, however, shopping for necessaries and attending family functions is one of the key areas the respondents are missing. If attending a social function is also recognised as one of the work life balance variables, it will help better job satisfaction of nurses. The majority of the women nurses in the private hospitals in Ghana context, Ghana are satisfied with different dimensions with respect to work logistics. It has been confirmed by the researcher while discussing with the nursing staff, they did express satisfaction over work logistics provided by hospitals. Skipping food and drug abuse are likely to be major lifestyle choice issues, which may impact health of nursing staff while other dimensions are not perceived as likely problems in future. Provision of canteen facilities with adequately stopped nutrition diet is likely to health.
