This study aimed to identify the health-related risks of nursing practice at Ahmed Gasim Hospital and Gafaar Ibnauf Children’s Hospital, Khartoum State, Sudan. A descriptive cross-sectional study was conducted at two governmental paediatric hospitals in Khartoum, from August to December 2017, in which 74 nurses were selected by convenience sampling to participate. The data was collected by a validated questionnaire and analysed by Statistical Package for Social Sciences, version 25. About 65% of nurses reported that they had high level of awareness of health risks they were exposed to on their job while 75.7% indicated that the major factors contributing to health risks in the hospitals were working pressure and poor working environment. Low back pain was found to be the most common healthrelated risks (77%) that might result from the extreme pressure at work (75.7%). Gender and years of experience had statistically significant association with health hazards among nurses (0.042 and 0.047, respectively). The study concluded that the majority of nurses have high awareness of health-related risks. The reported problems were low back pain which was found to be the most common health-related risk that might result from the extreme pressure at work.
