Background and Objective: Work stress is a negative physical and mental reaction that is the second most common work-related problem after musculoskeletal disorders. Fatigue is a state that occurs during a work period and causes a person to lose efficiency. This study was thus conducted to determine the relationship between job stress and job fatigue in nurses.
Materials and Methods: It was a cross-sectional descriptive-analytical study conducted in teaching and therapeutic hospitals of Gorgan, Iran, including Sayad Shirazi Hospital, 5 Azar Hospital, and Taleghani Hospital in 2021. A total of 277 nurses were included in the study after random stratified sampling. Data were collected by the OSIPOW job stress questionnaire and the Swedish SOFI job fatigue questionnaire and analyzed by the SPSS software (version 23).
Results: The mean score of job tension was 180.05±23.4, which was classified as moderate to severe.  The highest score was related to the role of the workload dimension and the lowest to the physical environment dimension. The mean score of job fatigue was 53.18±22.5 and was evaluated at a lower-than-average level. The highest score was related to the dimension of lack of energy and the lowest to the dimension of physical effort. There was also a weak direct and significant relationship between job tension and job fatigue, as well as all its dimensions.
Conclusion: Considering the relationship between job stress and job fatigue, it is suggested to provide the necessary infrastructure and facilities to reduce stress in nurses and provide training on how to deal with stress to the hospital staff.
