Introduction: Professional values can play an important role in the professional quality of their life by motivating nurses to deal with ethical issues and guiding the way they interact with patients and their colleagues. This study was conducted with the aim of determining the role of professional values on the quality of professional life of nurses working in Ayatollah Khatami Hospital in Khatam city in 2021.
Methods: In this descriptive-cross-sectional study, the population and research sample were the same, and 103 nurses working in Ayatollah Khatami Hospital affiliated to Shahid Sadoughi University of Medical Sciences, Yazd, central Iran, were included in the study by census method. The data collection tools were questionnaires of demographic information, professional quality of life, and professional values. Data analysis was done using descriptive and inferential statistics by SPSS2.
Results: The average score of professional values was 105.91±13.38. Among the dimensions of professional quality of life, the highest mean was related to the burnout dimension (36.06±5.50) and the lowest mean was related to the secondary traumatic stress dimension (21.30±3.46). There was an inverse and significant statistical relationship between secondary traumatic stress and professional values (r=-0.175, P=0.03). There was no significant relationship between the two dimensions of job burnout and compassion fatigue. The results of the regression test showed that professional values predict 3.1% of the total variance of secondary traumatic stress.
Conclusion: Nurses who provided care based on professional values had a lower level of secondary traumatic stress.
