Background : Nurses face a particular set of stresses due to their specific occupational status, which can endanger their physical and mental health. Therefore it is necessary to identify the important factors in the nursing community, such as moral intelligence, professional values and mental resilience, in order to help nursing staff preserve mental health, improve performance and provide better services to patients . Materials and Methods: This analytic- descriptive study (correlation method) was carried out on 150 nurses in hospitals in the Bam region of Iran, who were selected by the census sampling method .Data gathering tools included a demographic information checklist and a three part questionnaire related to moral intelligence (Lennik and Kiel),professional value (NPVS-R) and mental resilience (CD-RISC). Data was analyzed using SPSS. V.20 software, Pearson’s correlation coefficient, Linear regression, one-way ANOVA and an independent t-test Results: the total mean score of variables were: mental intelligence (±11.9)161.59, professional value (±8.89) 92.74 and resilience (±13.51) 64.00. Results showed that there exists a significant relation between moral intelligence and professional value, and resilience, and that predictor variables are able to predict nurses’, resilience changes (p<0.0001). Conclusion: based on this data, individuals who have high scores of professional value and high moral intelligence also possess a high mental resilience.
