This study aims to investigate the effect of personal and organizational factors on nurses’ generosity in knowledge sharing. For this purpose, a questionnaire was used to gather the required data from the nurses in Beheshti Hospital of Yasouj. The data were then analyzed using descriptive tests (SPSS Software) as well as structural equation modeling (Smart PLS Software). The following factors were found to influence nurses’ generosity in knowledge sharing respectively: organizational culture (&beta: 0.25 T: 5.02), supervisory (&beta: 0.10 T: 4.63), and human resources management (&beta: 0.05 T: 4.36). Some personal factors affecting nurses’ generosity in sharing knowledge included: willingness to help others (&beta: 0.32 T: 4.18) and trust in colleagues (&beta: 0.16 T: 3.02), respectively, but the effect of nurses’ perceived self-efficacy on their generosity in knowledge sharing was not significant (&beta: 0.08 T: 0.54). It can therefore be concluded that both personal and organizational factors are effective on nurses’ generosity in sharing knowledge, although the former appears to have a greater influence.
