Introduction Nowadays, there is persistent development and competition among educational institutions. To enhance their competitive advantage, nursing colleges should maintain a high level of citizenship behavior among their staff members. Objective The purpose of this study was to determine organizational citizenship behavior (OCB) among academic nursing staff and its relation to training and development, work–life policies, empowerment, commitment, and organizational trust in the nursing faculty at Port Said University. Participants and methods A descriptive corelational design was used in the present study. The sample consisted of 81 teaching staff. A structured questionnaire sheet was utilized for data collection. Results The study results revealed that most academic staff have high OCB and that work–life policies have a positive correlation with OCB. Recommendation The study recommended that university and faculty management should reconsider their training programs and development opportunities and faculty management should provide favorable working conditions and improve work–life policies.
