The tools included self reported questionnaires consisting personal information inventory, organizational commitment questionnaire (including three dimensions; affective, normative and continuance commitment), and clinical competence questionnaire (in seven dimensions for assessing 73 skills), whose validity and validity were confirmed in the past studies. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics (distribution tables, mean, standard deviation) and Pearson correlation coefficient test using SPSS version 17 (P <0.05).
 Results: The clinical competence of nurses was good (74.42±11.69) and their organizational commitment was moderate (91±10.77). Overall organizational commitment had a positive correlation with clinical competence in the areas of quality assurance (r=0.256, P = 0.002) and education and guidance (r=0.176, P = 0.037). In addition, emotional commitment had a direct correlation with total clinical competence (r=0.170, P = 0.045) and dimensions of quality assurance (r=0.185, P = 0.028), education and guidance (r=0.190, P = 0.024), and diagnostic measures (r=0.205, P = 0.015).
Conclusion: Based on the findings of this study and the background of the research, it is recommended managers improve nurses' organizational commitment through actions including applying appropriate leadership style, team development, individual support, increasing nurses independence, creating positive organizational climate and equity in distributing financial resources. It seems nursing managers be able to enhance the nurses' clinical competence and quality of care through improving the organizational commitment.
