The aim of this study was to identify the influences of sleep quality, depression and fatigue on job stress of geriatric hospital workers. The subjects were 175 workers from 6 geriatric hospitals. Data were collected on March, 2015 using a structured questionnaire. The data were analyzed by using SPSS/WIN 21.0 program. The job stress was negatively correlated with sleep quality(r=-.364, p<.001), positively correlated with depression(r=.376, p<.001) and fatigue(r=.646, p<.001). The multiple regression analysis revealed that the most powerful predictor of job stress was fatigue(, p<.001). These results indicate that fatigue affect job stress of the geriatric hospital workers. Therefore, it is necessary to prepare tailored fatigue management program and working conditions that can reduce job stress.
