Introduction: The widespread of corona virus and the lack of any definitive treatment and prevention have caused stress and anxiety in communities. Fear and anxiety caused by corona virus disease are destructive and they can lead to mental disorders in people. The aim of this study was to investigate role of health promoting behaviors and health beliefs to predict corona virus anxiety among nurses in Ardabil.
 Methods: The method of the present study was descriptive-correlation. The statistical population consisted of all nurses of Ardabil province in the summer of 2020. According to the latest statistics of the provincechr('39')s nursing system, 3,500 nurses are working in the province. Among these people, 382 people were selected as a statistical sample with Cochranchr('39')s formula and participated in the research by placing link questions in Telegram and WhatsApp groups. In this study, Alipour et al. Coronavirus Disease Anxiety Scale (CDAS), Walker Health Promoting Lifestyle Questionnaire and Weissfeld et al.chr('39')s Health Beliefs Questionnaire were used. Data analysis was performed using Pearson correlation coefficient and multiple regression simultaneously with 24SPSS software.
Results: Correlation results showed that coronary anxiety was associated with general health concerns (r=0.61), general health threats (r=0.37), vulnerability (r=0.57), and severity (r= 0.28). Positive and with medical treatment benefits (r=-0.44), self-help benefits (r=-0.44), self-actualization (r=-0.45), nutrition (r=-0.43), exercise (r=-0.52), stress management (r=-0.44), stress responsibility (r=-0.55) and interpersonal support (r=-0.59) are negatively related. The results of regression analysis also showed that 67% of the total variance of coronary anxiety is explained by health beliefs and 62% by promotional behaviors.
Conclusions: The results of this study show that health-promoting behaviors and health beliefs are associated with low corona virus anxiety. Therefore, interventions focused on these components can be effective in preventing nurses from developing corona virus anxiety.
