The goal of this study was to examine the prevalence of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) among nursing personnel in different hospitals and nursing homes of West Bengal, India and to assess various work-related factors as the causative elements contributing towards MSDs. Maintaining the inclusion and exclusion criteria of this study, 58 registered nurses were chosen. Modified Nordic Questionnaire and Copenhagen Psychosocial Questionnaire (COPSOQ) were used. Percentage analysis, Correlation analysis, and χ2 tests were performed. Almost 90% of the total population (N = 58) complained of various types of MSDs. The most prevalent one among them was lower back pain (LBP) (62.1%). LBP and ankle/feet pain showed significant correlations with some demand and job content scales of the COPSOQ. 74.1% and 25.9% of subjects belonged to the high and low demand category respectively, likewise, 75.9% and 24.1% were in the high and low job content category. For LBP and job demand, χ2 (1) = 10.771, p = 0.001 and for LBP and job content, χ2 (1) = 4.383, p = 0.036. MSDs are highly frequent in the nursing profession and LBP is the most recurrent one. High physical and psychological demands imposed stronger effects than job content factors on MSDs.
