Background: Nurses’ job satisfaction is one of the most important factors affecting organizational commitment. Aim: The study aimed to identify the relationship between job satisfaction and Organizational Commitment among nurses. Methods and Materials: A descriptive, correlational and cross-sectional study design carried out between (5th/September/2017 till 30th of May/2018) at five hospitals in Mosul/Iraq. Depending on the convenience sampling method and Non-probability sampling technique, a sample of (317) nurses were selected. Two instruments were used to collect data via an interview method with each subject (Minnesota Job Satisfaction Questionnaire “JS” and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire “OC”). To measure the content validity of the questionnaires, they exposed to five experts in the nursing field, whereas, the reliability of them was checked by Cronbach’s alpha. The results of the study were demonstrated by descriptive statistic through (mean standard and deviation), and by inferential statistic through (stepwise regression). Findings: Total JS and its domains had significant relationships with total OC and its Affective and Normative domains, while they hadn’t any significant relationships with total OC.
