Nurses were selected by convenience sampling method. Data were collected with Neff’s Self-Compassion Questionnaire (2003) and its internal consistency was (α= 0.81). Data analyzed by descriptive (mean, standard deviation, frequency and relative frequency) and inferential (t-test, ANOVA and Pearson’s coefficient of correlation) statistics.
Results: Mean level (3.86±0.67) of self-compassion was moderate. There was a significant correlation between self-compassion and age, experience years, sex as well as educational level (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Nurse Managers should facilitate understanding and insight to self-compassion in nurses to gain a better attitude toward events of work environment. By this they would be used self- compassion for dealing job stresses.
