Background & Objectives: Patients' health and recovery progress are affected by the quality of services provided by nurses and their commitment. Since part of the nurses’ commitment and quality of work is affected by organizational justice and workplace well-being, the present study was done to determine the relationship between organizational justice and workplace well-being in nurses.
Methods: In this descriptive-analytical study done in a cross-sectional manner in 2019, 225 nurses from two public hospitals and two private hospitals in Gonbad-e-kavus city were selected through simple random sampling. Data gathering tools were organizational justice and well-being questionnaires. Data were analyzed using Spearman statistical test and through SPSS statistical software version 22.
Results: Organizational justice in the studied public and private hospitals was at a moderate level and workplace well-being in the studied private and public hospitals was good. There was a significant and positive relationship between the mean score of organizational justice and workplace well-being in public hospitals (P=0.006).
Conclusion: Conducting interpersonal and social interaction training courses for all nursing staff in all health departments is essential to enhance well-being at work. There is also a need to periodically evaluate the status of organizational justice based on standards to address shortcomings or deficiencies.
