Purpose: This study aims to verify the mediating effects of self-esteem and social network on the relation between depression and meaning of life of middle-aged women. Method: The data was collected from total 119 middle-aged women in 40-64 years old. The data was analyzed using the descriptive statistics, Pearson’s correlation coefficient and stepwise multiple regression by using the SPSS 22.0 Program. Results: The meaning of life showed the significantly negative correlation with depression(r=.-52, p<.001) while it showed the positive correlations with self-esteem(r=.74, p<.001) and social network(r=.56, p<.001). In the relation between depression and meaning of life, the self-esteem and social network were the significant mediating variables. Conclusion: This study could be used as the basic data for the development of integrated nursing intervention programs that could improve the quality of life of middle-aged women
