Materials and Methods: This is a cross-sectional study that was performed through the academic year 2018–2019.

Results: The prevalence of part-time work among the studied nursing students was 41.3%, the associated factors which found to be significant in contributing for working among students are being male (P < 0.001; adjusted odds ratio [AOR] 3.1; 95% [CI: 2.19–4.7]), and father having basic education only (P = 0.02; AOR 2.3; 95% [CI: 1.39–2.7]) was independently associated with students’ employment. About 56.9% of the participants work for financial support and 32.4% work to gain experience; exposure to physical hazards and biological hazards was the utmost common health hazards reported by working nursing students, musculoskeletal complaints were the most recurrent occupational health effects (80%).

Conclusion: Working among nursing students becomes a common phenomenon that has a positive and negative impact, it leads to gaining clinical experience among students through working but at the same time, they are at a risk of exposure to physical, biological, and mechanical hazards.
