The nursing profession is characterized by a work paradox: motivating but also at risk in terms of health and with a high workers' turnover intention. It is therefore important understanding the dynamics reducing discomfort. The present study detects the mediation of flow at work between job demands and psychosomatic disorders. 259 nurses fulfilled a questionnaire that measures: flow at work, workload, emotional dissonance, patients' demands, psychosomatic disorders. The structural equation model highlights the meditating role of flow at work between job demands and psychosomatic disorders. Moreover, the study shows the need to promote flow at work for an organizational culture looking to well-being and to the containment of the discomfort.
