Introduction:: Due to the importance of empowering nurses, increasing their organizational learning and forming organizational trust, it is of utmost importance to address the factors since human resources as the central element of an organization can play a significant role for reaching the organizational goals.
Aim: The aim of the study was to investigate the relationship between psychological empowerment and organizational trust, with emphasis on the mediating role of organizational learning.
Method: The study was descriptive and correlational and it applied Structural Equation Modeling. The study was conducted in 2015. The population consisted of all nurses working in the educational hospitals in the city of Hamadan. Applying stratified random sampling and using the formula proposed by Krejcie and Morgan, 260 participants were chosen. For collecting data; standard psychological empowerment (Spritzer1995), an organizational learning (Neif 2001) and an organizational trust questionnaire (Mormen, Blakly & Niehoff 1998) were used. In the pilot study participated (30) nurses and by using Cronbach alpha coefficient, the reliability of these questionnaires was found to be 0.87, 0.94 and 0.89, respectively. Data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and Structural Equation Modeling by SSPS16 and LISREL8.8.
Results: The results showed that there was a significant positive relationship (p < 0.01) between psychological empowerment, organizational learning and organizational trust. Moreover, the findings revealed a significant positive relationship (p < 0.05) between psychological empowerment and organizational trust with a mediating role of organizational learning.
Conclusion: Utilizing plans for empowering the employees and providing suitable conditions for developing and increasing organizational learning, hospital administrators can pave the way for forming and strengthening organizational trust among nurses.
