Improving the mental health of nurses and investigating the factors affecting it leads to the improvement of job performance and the quality of nursing care. Aim: The present study aimed to determine the relationship between mental health, life satisfaction, and job satisfaction of nurses in Ilam city in 2022. The present correlational study was carried out on 160 nurses working in educational hospitals of Ilam city and was selected by stratified random sampling in 2022. A four-part questionnaire was used: the first part included a question on demographic information. Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire (MSQ) (1977), Diener et al.'s Satisfaction with Life Scale (SWLS) (1985), and Derogatis et al.'s Symptom Checklist-90 (SCL-9) (1973) were included in the second, third and the fourth parts, respectively. Results showed no significant relationship between the total score of mental health and the total score of job satisfaction. There was a significant relationship between the total job satisfaction score and life satisfaction score (r=0.267, p=0.001). There was also an inverse and significant relationship between the total mental health score and the life satisfaction score (r=0.294, p=0.001). The collected data was analyzed using descriptive tests (frequency, mean percentage, and standard deviation) and non-parametric Spearman and Kruskal-Walli's correlation tests in SPSS ver. 22. Pvalue<0.05 was considered as the significance level in all tests. Job satisfaction is effective in creating motivation, efficiency, responsibility, and social accountability in the personnel of any organization. Job dissatisfaction can lead to complications such as job burnout, illness, absenteeism, the job left, leaving many nursing jobs, and the reluctance of the young workforce to attend the wards. Therefore, it is necessary to make further efforts in this field by healthcare policymakers.
