It is an undeniable fact that nurses have an important role in the provision of health services. The psychological well-being of nurses is associated with an improvement in their job performance. The aim of this research was to survey the relationship between spiritual and moral intelligence and the psychological well-being of nurses.

This was a descriptive-correlational study conducted on 128 nurses working in hospitals of Bojnourd during 2013. The subjects were selected through availability sampling and responded to King’s Spiritual Intelligence Self-Report Inventory, Lennick and Kiel’s Moral Competency Inventory and Ryff’s Scales of Psychological Well-being. The collected data were analyzed by Pearson’s correlation coefficient and regression analysis using SPSS software version 18.

The results indicated a positive and significant relationship between spiritual and moral intelligence and psychological well-being (P<0.01). The regression analysis showed that spiritual and moral intelligence could significantly predict 26 percent of the variance of psychological well-being (P<0.01).

Based on the positive relationship between spiritual and moral intelligence and the psychological well-being of nurses, it is recommended that these factors be taken into consideration in programs designed to promote nurses’ mental health
