Background & Aims: Nurses, as the pioneers of community health, experience various types of injuries and tensions. So, career resilience is known as one of the most basic capacities to deal with stressful situations among nurses. Therefore, due to the Covid-19 crisis and the increase of nurses' conflict with corona patients, their career resilience has been affected and it has created challenges for them in the field of work and family. Accordingly, this study was conducted with the aim of investigating the structural relationships of career resilience of nurses with work-family conflict and fear of Covid-19 in Tabriz, Iran.
Materials & Methods: The research method was survey and type of the study was descriptive-correlation. The statistical population included nurses from medical training centers affiliated to Tabriz University of Medical Sciences which 351 of them were selected using share-based stratified sampling method. The data were collected after taking written consent from the nurses from summer to fall 2011 using a questionnaire and analyzed by SPSS and Lisrel softwares by using Pearson correlation test, student t-test, and structural equations.
Results: According to the results, the level of career resilience of nurses on a scale of 0-100 was 56.4, work-family conflict was 57.6, and fear of Covid-19 was 66.7. The level of career resilience among nurses in the hospitals accepting Corona patients was less than the others. The results of structural relationships also showed that work-family conflict directly and with a coefficient of -0.20, fear of Covid-19 indirectly (through work-family conflict) with a coefficient of -0.05, work experience directly and indirectly with a total coefficient of 0.21, and the service hospital directly and indirectly with a total coefficient of 0.19 had a significant overall effect on nurses' career resilience.
Conclusion: According to the results, work-family conflict and fear of Covid-19 play important roles in nurses' career resilience. Therefore, it is possible to use support methods such as changing work shifts, flexible working hours, reducing household roles by taking care of children and creating kindergartens for their children, empowering and increasing the knowledge of nurses in the field of Covid-19 by holding workshops, and increasing protective facilities in order to reduce fear of Covid-19 to increase career resilience of the nurses.
