Abstract:

This study assessed the relationship between five stressors (the family factors, the economic factors, job difficulty, Peers' competition and organizational climate) with nurses' performance (Creativity and innovation, the ability in problem solving and decision making). The population of the study was the nurses working at King Abdullah hospital at Irbid city in Jordan. A random sample of 120 nurses was selected, by using descriptive statistics and correlation coefficient, it was found that the family factor is not considered a stressor according to the sample point of view and there was no relationship between this factor and nurses' performance, while there was a significant positive relationship between the other 4 stressors and performance as follows: organizational climate had the most influence on performance followed by the economic factors, then Job difficulty and finally peers' competition. To reduce the negative outcomes of stress it was recommended to make fundamental improvements to the hospital organizational climate and increase leaders support.
