Abstract: 

Background & Aims: The birth and hospitalization of a preterm infant in the intensive care unit is a stressful experience for parents. But on the other hand, supporting parents has been suggested as one of the main nursing roles. This study has been conducted to determine the relationship between nursing support and parents stress in mothers with premature infants in Neonatal Intensive Care Units.
Material & Methods: In a descriptive correlative study, 153mothers with premature infants in Neonatal Intensive Care Units participated in convenient sampling method continuously. Data was collected through using demographic questionnaire, Miles' Nurse- Parent Support Tool and Parental Stress Scale. The Parental Stress Scale included light and sounds of NICU environment, the infant's appearance and behaviour and parents' role changes. The Nurse –Parent Support Tool included four dimensions: emotional support, information-communication support, self –esteem support, and qualitative support. Data was analysed by utilizing descriptive and analytic statistics including Pearson correlation coefficient and multivariate linear regression analysis in SPSS software.
Results: Pearson correlation coefficient showed that among stressors, only factors related to light and sounds of NICU environment in all dimensions had direct relationship with the total score of received nursing support but it was poor (r=0.283 p<0.05) and it was not meaningful according to multivariate linear regression analysis.86% of mothers received low nursing support and only 13.1% received high nursing support and 60.8% of them reported a lot of parental stress.
Conclusion: It seems that the amount of received nursing support by mothers to decrease parental stress was not enough so, planning to promote professional nursing support of mothers with premature infants in neonatal intensive care units is necessary.
