This study examines the impact of work stress, workload, job attitudes, and deviant workplace behaviour on nurses in the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa region of Pakistan. A survey was conducted among 300 nurses working in public and private hospitals, and the data was analysed using structural equation modelling. The results indicate that work stress and workload have a significant positive effect on deviant workplace behaviour, while job attitudes have a significant negative effect. The study also found that job attitudes mediate the relationship between work stress and deviant workplace behaviour. The findings suggest that healthcare organizations should focus on reducing work stress and workload and promoting positive job attitudes to prevent deviant workplace behaviour among nurses. Policymakers should also consider implementing policies and programs to support nurses' mental health and well- being.
