Introduction: the nursing profession is in the group of high-stress occupations. Mindfulness is a specific attitude towards the experience that relies on the two elements of present and acceptance. This study investigates the relationship between mindfulness and job stress in nurses.
Materials and Methods: In this descriptive correlational study, 270 nurses working in Panj Azar Hospital in Gorgan were included in the study via convenience sampling. The instruments were a demographic checklist and two standard questionnaires, including the Brown and Ryan mindfulness questionnaire and Tuft and Anderson nursing job stress questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive and inferential statistics in SPSS17 software at the statistical level of 0.05 (p 0.05). 
Results: According to the results, the nurses of Panj Azar Hospital, with an average score of about 80.93%, suffer from moderate job stress. This variable has a significant relationship with gender and marriage. In this study, the average score of nurses' mindfulness is about 72.20. The results also showed a negative correlation (-0.24) between mindfulness and job stress. 
Conclusion: The mindfulness variable can predict nurses' job stress. Therefore, the nurses who have more mindfulness experience lower stress.
