[Research Presentation] This study has as objectives, the evaluation of Quality of Life and the associations between Quality of Life and the characteristics socio-demographic status, of study and work of the worker-students enrolled in the Middle Level Technical School for ProfessionaláQualification in Nursing. The population consisted of 101 worker-students in a private technical school in the city of Sao Paulo/Brazil. To evaluate their Quality of Life we used the Ferrans and Powers QLI, obtained from four dominions: Health/functioning, Social/economic, Psychologic/spiritual and Family. The QLI showed reliability with an alpha value of 0.84. The majority (82.2%) of the students were females, 63.3% Caucasian, 65.7% were aged between 19 and 29 years, 68.3% single; 82.8% said they slept less than 6 hours/day. About the hours dedicated to studying, 47.5% spent than 2 hours in it and 18.8% had no time to study; 58.4% of them did not keep themselves attentive in the theoretical classes, the main reason for this being tiredness (84.7%). About punctuality, both at the start and at the ending of the classes, 35.0% cannot obey the time-table, the main reason being the incompatibility betweenáthe schedules of the school and of the job; 69.0% of the students work more than 31 hours/week. The majority (93.1%) of the worker-students had a single job and 66.3% had a registered job. In the evaluation of their Quality of Life we obtained the following scores: total Quality of Life, 21.07 (SD=4.50), Health/functioning, 20.01 (SD=5.03); Socio-economic, 20.09 (SD=4.82); Psychologic/spiritual, 23.58 (SD=5.41); and Family, 22.18 (SD=6.61). We found a significant relationship between Quality of Life and the following variables: age, attention in the theoretic classes, compliance with the start/finish hours of the classes, and the existence of registered job. The Quality of Life of the worker-students was considered to be good in all dominions of QOL.
