Background and Objective: There is significant  relationship between sleep quality and quality of the duty services among nurses. Since the nurses are the most prominent groups in providing health care for patients, so they should enjoy themselves high quality of life and sleep.

The data were collected using unstructured information form, Pittsburgh sleep quality index and Epworth sleepiness scale. Data  analysis was done with descriptive and t-independent, ANOVA, Pearson correlation  and logistic Regression test.

Results: About 22.1 % of the participants  were men. Mean  and standard deviation of age and history of job were 31.63±6.61 and 7.55±6.79, respectively. This study showed that the sleep quality were suitable in only 51(17%) nurses. However, only 32.6% of nurses had sleepiness. The quality of life were high among only 32(10.7%) of nurses. In univariate analysis, the sleep quality was related with the sex, age, monthly income, marital status, working shift pattern, history of work error and type of insurance and the sleepiness was related to marital status and history of work error (p<0.05).Multiple logistic regression showed that only marital status, age and working shift pattern affect both sleep quality and sleepiness.
