Data were collected using two questionnaires including job motivation and organizational climate. In order to data .analysis, descriptive and analytical tests such as Pearson correlation coefficient were utilized.

More than half of nurses had evaluated group spirit as high level and hindrance, engagement, intimacy, consideration, spacing, thrust and production emphasis as moderate level. There was a direct significant relationship between all components of job motivation and engagement, intimacy, consideration, spacing, thrust and production emphasis (P<0.05).
