Compassionate care is considered one of the important elements of patient-centered and oriented care that gives health to the patient. Therefore, this study was conducted with the aim of designing and explaining the model of compassionate care of nurses based on moral identity and compassion for the lives of others. The present research method was done according to path analysis. The statistical sample included 250 patients with covid-19 and 250 nurses working in the corona department of hospitals in West Azerbaijan province in 2021, which were selected by available sampling method. Rodriguez's compassionate care questionnaire, Black and Reynolds' moral identity questionnaire, and Chang's scale of compassion for others' lives were used to collect data. The data were analyzed using Pearson, Bootstrap and Sobel tests and also through SPSS and Amos software program, version 24. The results showed that the variable of moral identify in interaction with the mediating role of compassion for the lives of others in explaining the compassionate care of nurses. A total of 0. 41 of the variance of compassionate care was explained through model variables. The direct effect of moral identity (0. 47), compassion for the lives of others (0. 36) was observed and it was significant in explaining the compassionate care model. Also, the result showed that the indirect effect of moral identity was found to be significant through the mediation of compassion and also towards the lives of others (2. 96). Considering the variable mediating effect of compassion towards the lives of others in the relationship between moral identity and compassionate care of nurses, it seems that the growth or strengthening of compassion towards the lives of others and moral identity can promote the compassionate care of nurses.
