Abstract: Writers in the popular and academic press indicate that women are seeking information about their life cycle and corresponding changes upon their life roles. The purpose of this research was to explore and describe how women’s menopausal life-cycle stages of development relate to their health through occupational experiences of burnout, job involvement, and hardiness. Approximately 700 Registered Nurses responded to the Women’s Health Occupational and Life Experiences (WHOLE) Profile. Significant findings were found between pre and post-menopausal (but not peri-menopausal) life-cycle stages and health. No significant correlations were found between menopausal life-cycle stages and the variables of burnout, job involvement and hardiness. Significant differences were found between health ailments and burnout and hardiness, between chronic illnesses and hardiness, between age and job involvement and hardiness, as well as number of children and job involvement. The findings indicated that about 40% of the participants were experiencing a high degree of burnout, 43% demonstrated active job involvement, and36% showed high hardiness.
