This study explored the influence of spousal support and number of children on family strain interference with work. The study comprised a Cross-sectional Survey of 118 female nurses between the ages of 27 to 59 years (M=40.35) at University of Nigerian Teaching Hospital and Orthopedic Hospital Enugu using Multi-stage sampling. Four (4)-item Strain-based Family Interference with Work Scale drawn from Okonkwo (2011) 32-item Work-family Conflict Scale was administered. 2x2 Analysis of Variance F-test revealed no significant influence of Spousal support and number of children on family strain interference with work at F (1,117) = 2.09, p > .05 and F(1,117) = 0.00, p >. 05. These results were discussed in the light of Role Strain Theory.
