Methods: A convenient sample of 91 primary caregivers of hospitalized patients diagnosed with cancer was recruited. A cross-sectional, correlation design was used. These family caregivers were asked to complete Caregiver Reaction Assessment and Psychological Well-Being Scale. Pearson-Product Moment Correlation and hierarchical multiple regression analyses were used to examine the questions. Results: Family caregivers' psychological well-being and quality of relationship had a significant negative relationship with impact on health (r = -.57, p < .001 and r = -.55, p < .001 respectively). There was a significant positive relationships between lack of family support and impact on health (r = .50, p < .001). Psychological well-being, quality of relationship, and family support accounted for 59% of the variance on impact on health. Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study, nurses should be aware that family caregivers' psychological well-being, quality of relationship, and family support have an impact on caregivers' health while providing care in the hospital and upon discharge.
