Demographic variables, being involved in job, mission, adjustment, and adaptability had a significant, negative associatin with job stres, and only adjustment had asignificant associatin with mental health (p<0.05). Conclusion: According to the study results, it can be concluded that the use of cooperative organization culture in hospital benefits and cooperation of nurses in hospital affairs reduces stress. The assessment of organizational culture by hospital managers seems necessary to plan for organization and its success. Therefore, they can help nurses' mental health through holding courses for organizational culture promotion, creating a healthy environment, raising resistance power and individual adjustment, managing stress, and encouraging and supporting them financially. Using participatory organizational culture and having nurses participate in hospital affairs are helpful in decreasing job stress.
