Abstract

 Background: Nurses experience considerable stress due to their difficult working conditions. Experiencing stress over a long period of time can influence Mental Health. Objectives: This study aimed at predicting NursesMental Health based on their Job Burnout, Perceived Social Support, and Psychological Hardiness. Methods: This correlational study was done during year 2015 on 400 individuals, who worked in public hospitals located in Tehran, Iran. All Nurses completed Maslach and Jackson’ s Job Burnout inventory, Zimet et al. ’ s Perceived Social Support scale, Kobasa’ s Psychological Hardiness inventory, and Goldberg and Hillier’ s general health questionnaire. The data were analyzed using the SPSS software (v. 19. 0) through running the Pearson correlation analysis and multiple regression analysis at a significance level of less than 0. 01. Results: NursesMental Health was positively correlated with their Job Burnout (r = 0. 37) and negatively with their Perceived Social Support (r =-0. 56) and Psychological Hardiness (r =-0. 53; P < 0. 01). Job Burnout, Perceived Social Support and Psychological Hardiness explained 54. 9% of the total variance of NursesMental Health (R2 = 0. 549). Conclusions: Given the significant role of Job Burnout, Perceived Social Support and Psychological Hardiness in predicting NursesMental Health, manipulating these variables can help improve NursesMental Health.
