  Background and Aim: Staff of any organization are the main index for the superiority of the organization. Organizational commitment is an important predictor of organizational behavior whose analysis can help leaders and supervisors to identify the potential problems. This study was conducted to investigate the relationships between nurses' burnout and organizational commitment at Valiasr Hospital of Birjand in 2011.

  Materials and Methods : In this descriptive-correlational study, 146 nurses were selected through the convenience sampling. Data were collected by Maslach's Job Burnout as well as Meyer and Allen’s Organizational Commitment Questionnaires whose reliability and validity were confirmed in previous studies. Data were analyzed in SPSS (version 15) using independent t test, ANOVA, Pearson correlation and linear regression at the significant level of 0.05.

  Results : Burnout and organizational commitment mean scores were 72.87±20.02 and 95.01±14.25 respectively.There was a negative significant correlation between nurses' burnout and dimensions of organizational commitment (p<0.05) including affective (p<0.001) and normative (p<0.01) dimensions. a lso, there was a significant correlation between organizational commitment and sex however, there was no significant correlation with other demographic variables.

  Conclusion: According to the results of this study, which indicates a significant correlation between burnout and organizational commitment , it seems that organizational factors are more influential than personal ones on organizational commitment. Managers can reduce burnout and enhance commitment by controlling factors influential on job burnout.
