Background and Aim: Several researchers have described the nurses' work as stressful and that the incidence of the occupational stress-related burnout in the profession was high. The aim of this study was to establish the relationship between the nurses' satisfaction, their psychosocial work environment, the levels of their reported moral sensitivities and their well - being in Iran. Material and Methods: This descriptive-correlation study was performed at the ILAM general hospitals, IR, during the year 2011. The research instruments which were used were the Psychosocial Work Environment (PWE), the Moral Sensitivity (MS) and the well-being profile of the nurses. A sample of 120 Registered Nurses (RN) were enrolled in the study by using a simple random sampling method. The descriptive statistics and the Pearson's correlation test were performed by using SPSS. Result: The relationship of the nurses' satisfaction and their psychosocial work environment was moderate (M=106.5, SD= 7.2). The nurses' moral sensitivity was moderate (M=112.3, SD= 11.2).This study found that there were significant correlations between the PWE factors score and the MS subscale (P< 0.05, p<0.01). In addition, significant correlations were found between the nurses' well-being and the PWE factors (P< 0.05, p<0.01). Discussion and Conclusion: These findings proved that the nurses perceived their PWE as stressful. The supporting nurses may have a positive effect on their perceptions of well-being. The attending nurses reported less physical symptoms, reduced anxiety and fewer feelings of not being in control.
