Abstract: This study assessed the relationship between occupational stress amongst nurses and healthcare delivery at the Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. Occupational stress amongst nurses is prevalent and can have adverse effects on job performance, consequently compromising healthcare delivery. Questionnaires were administered to one hundred and thirty seven registered nurses who were previously identified to partake in the study. Analysis of Variance (ANOVA) was used to analyse the data with sun of squares = 23.115, F = 15.583 and p = 0.000; results show significant relationship between occupational stress and low job performance. The study recommends training initiatives and advocates organizational support policies.
