Emotional intelligence and critical thinking are important factors affecting professional performance and mental health of health care professionals. In this research, the relationship between emotional intelligence and critical thinking is investigated. This is a descriptive-correlational study.

Using Cochran formula, 174 subjects were obtained. The main tool for data collection was the Bar-On Inventory and California Critical Thinking Skills Questionnaire. The validity of the questionnaire was confirmed by the professors and reliability was calculated using Cronbach's alpha coefficient for emotional intelligence and critical thinking questionnaire 0.82 and 0.79 questionnaire. The mean scores of emotional intelligence in nurses working in studied hospitals were 3.46±0.78 of 5 and the average score of critical critical thinking nurses was 22.66 out of 34.
