The data were collected using a demographic information questionnaire and a crossculturally adapted nurses’ lifestyle questionnaire. Data analysis was performed using SPSS software (version 25) and descriptive and inferential statistical tests. A P-value less than 0.05 was considered the significance level.

The overall score of lifestyle subscales in the COVID-19 group was higher than the nonCOVID- 19 group. In this regard, the highest subscale score was related to the competence dimension in both COVID-19 (4.690.300) and nonCOVID-19 (4.570.418) groups (P = 0.001).
