Background: Quality of life and family functioning is affected by several psychological factors, of which personality traits can be noted as the most important ones. This research aimed to investigate the role of personality traits in predicting family functioning and quality of life among nurses in the city of Shiraz from 2017 to 2018.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was performed on all married nurses in Shiraz who were selected using convenience sampling method. The data collection tools included family functioning, quality of life, and personality dimensions' questionnaires. Data were analyzed in SPSS (version 23) software using simple correlation coefficients and multiple regressions. 
Results: The results showed that 26% of the variance in family functioning of nurses is explained by the components of neuroticism, flexibility, extroversion, and 24% of the variance in quality of life is explained by the components of personality traits. In addition, 20% of the variance in the quality of life of nurses is explained by the flexibility components. It should be noted that the level of significance in this study was set at 0.05(α = 0.05).
Conclusion:  Based on the results of this study, since personality traits play an important role in the quality of life and family functioning of nurses in different dimensions. it is necessary to make plans for improving the quality of life and family functioning of nurses. It is also recommended that mental health be evaluated periodically to improve QOL and family functioning of nurses.
