Subjective well-being is defined as a state of individual’s evaluation towards life in regards to both cognitive and affective aspects. It is a derivation of the positive psychology field which use to cultivate the positive emotions among individuals to ensure the positive impacts in their life. Thus, the subjective well-being is vital among nurses since they involved with a large number of patients with the shortage of nurses which affect their internal feelings.
