Introduction: With the growing demand and progress in nursing, the pressure on nurses has also increased. It is often seen that nursing work is under great pressure. This is especially true for staff nurses who work in specialized areas.
Methods: A case-by-step modeling process was selected to select 100 nurses working in a psychiatric hospital. Data collected were analyzed using descriptive and interactive statistics. By looking at the nature of the problem and achieving research objectives the design of descriptive research was adopted. The completed closed questionnaire was designed to assess occupational stress and job satisfaction for psychiatric nurses.
Results: The distribution of nurses of their age showed that the highest percentage (58%) of nurses was between the ages of 31-40, followed by staff between the ages of 41-50 and (32%). Only (10%) of employees were between the ages of 51-60.
In the event of changes without notice 32% sometimes and 24% remain annoyed. While taking disciplinary action with a simple error of 30% at one point, 28% always get upset. 36% sometimes and 24% usually feel disappointed when they don't get a good job.
Conclusion: Anxiety score is 128.5 and work satisfaction score was 67. There was a significant correlation between job stress and job satisfaction for psychiatric nurses (r - 0.625, P <0.01).
There was a significant relationship between job stress and age (P <0.05) distance from workplace and year of experience (P <0.05). Job satisfaction had a significant relationship with the number of children (P <0.05) and monthly income (P <0.05), some of which varied in population was not correlated.
