  Background and Aim: Hospital is an institute whose main strategy is providing diagnostic and treatment services for different medical situations, surgical or non- surgical. Staff is the most essential work force constituting health and treatment organizations and nurses, the largest professional group in a health care system, provide the largest part of direct care for patients, so they playa very important role in maintaining and improving the health of the society. Critical goals of hospitals will not be achieved unless the required numbers of qualified nurses are provided in proper time and place. The present study was conducted to survey the size and combination of nursing staff in affiliated treatment centers to Birjand Medical University and comparing with the complied standards of the ministry. We hope that the present study be able to take a step towards planning and reaching those standards and eventually improving quality of care.
