Abstract: 

Background & Objectives: Today, mental health is one of the development indicators of countries and one aspect of the overall concept of health. Religious beliefs are considered as one component of impact on mental health, however internal and external religious orientation can have different effects on lives of individuals. Therefore, the aim of this study was to determine the relationship of religiosity and mental health nurses.
Martial & Methods: This study was performed as a cross-correlation analysis. The studied population consisted of all nurses working in public hospitals in Tabriz in 2014 so that 180 subjects were selected. To selection of the sample size in each hospital were performed randomly. Data from standard general health questionnaire and Alport religious orientation were used and analyzed by Pearson's correlation coefficient and software SPSS.20.
Results: The findings indicate a positive correlation between the religious orientation and the outer component of mental health (P=0.001) and a negative correlation between the intrinsic religious orientation and mental health (P=0.001). This means that the nurses with intrinsic religious orientation have better mental health.
Conclusion: Due to the influence of religious orientation on the quality of mental health, it seems that, for achieving a spiritually healthy society, developing programs to promote religious culture and spiritual and internal aspects of religion should be emphasized.
