Background: Given that Tabriz Shohada hospital is the place of admitting emergency patients including accident victims, Nurses are exposed to double stress at hospital. This study conducted to predict nursing stress based on personality traits and job engagement among nurses in Shohada hospital of Tabriz.

Materials and Methods: The current study was a correlational one. Randomly selected 105 nurses from Tabriz Shohada hospital sections such as sixth general sections including Rehabilitation, ICU & Emergency Department participated. Contributors answered to Nursing Stress Scale, Eysenck Personality Questionnaire Revised (EPQ-R) and Job Engagement Scale. Data were analyzed using stepwise multiple regression analysis.

Results: The study results indicated that nursing stress was more strongly associated with the neuroticism; there were no relationships among nursing stress and extraversion or psychoticism. Also, nursing stress revealed a positive relationship with job engagement. Using the multivariate regression analysis showed that the neuroticism trait (p< 0.001, F=10.68) and job engagement (p= 0.004, F=10.12) were suitable predictors for nursing stress among three personality factors and job engagement.

Conclusions: Nursing stress influenced by internal factors more than demographic variables and two important predictive variables (neuroticism trait and job engagement) had more important roles in nursing stress prediction.
