Background and Aim: Nursing is one of the occupations that face a lot of stress in medical settings, especially hospitals. Job stress can negatively affect a nurse's performance and how she cares for her patient. Therefore, the present study was performed to evaluate the level of job stress in nurses of Shahidzadeh Hospital in Behbahan. Materials and Methods: The present study was a descriptive cross-sectional analytical study. The instruments used in the study included demographic information and an expanded nursing stress scale questionnaire. The study was performed on 220 nurses of Shahidzadeh Hospital in Behbahan by census method. Statistical data were performed using SPSS software version 22 using descriptive and inferential statistics at a significant level of p <0.05. Results: The mean age of participants was 31.02 ± 06.68. The mean scores of participants in occupational stress and its subscales showed that about half of the subjects (55.9%) in the study had poor job stress. There was no significant relationship between job stress and demographic variables of gender and marital status using independent t-test and there was no significant relationship between job stress and the above variables. Conclusion: Due to the existence of stress as a negative factor in patient care and the gap between discrimination between physicians and nurses as one of the factors aggravating stress, it is recommended that nursing managers take measures to prevent and support nurses.
