Abstract:

Introduction: Nowadays, the most sustainable competitive advantage of all organizations, such as medical centers, is human capital. One of the most important ways to create a competitive advantage in healthcare centers is reducing job stress among nurses. Studies show that reducing job stress may lead to organizational commitment, which is a vital factor for achieving organizational efficiency.
Materials and Methods: This descriptive and correlational study was conducted on 120 nurses as sample working in the hospitals of Behbahan. The participants were selected through simple random sampling. The data collection tools were Health and Safety Executives questionnaire (HSE) and organizational commitment questionnaire of Allen and Meyer. Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis were performed to analyze the data. P-value less than 0.05 was considered statistically significant. In this study, job stress was considered as the independent variable and organizational commitment as the dependent variable.
Results:The results showed that there is a significant inverse relationship between job stress and organizational commitment. Moreover, there is a significant inverse relationship between job stress and affective, normative and continuance commitment.
Conclusion: Taking regression analysis into account, it can be concluded that peer relation is the most powerful predictor of organizational commitment.
