Absenteeism in nursing, characterized by an employee's complete absence from work for a day, poses a significant challenge for Nurse Managers. A quantitative cross-sectional study explored absenteeism determinants among nurses in Lahore's public sector. A sample of 114 staff nurses from a tertiary healthcare facility was selected using convenience sampling. The result of study showed that Health problems dominate as the primary factor (40.1%), emphasizing the substantial impact on the situation. Work environment (22.5%) and personal/family issues (26.5%) also play significant roles, highlighting the multifaceted nature of the problem. The study concluded that Health problems, working conditions, personal and family matters, and stress are identified as key factors contributing to absenteeism. To reduce absenteeism among nurses, enhance working conditions and time management training should be provide.
