Also, the situation of the meaning life component and the engagement life component (in the characteristics of positive psychology) among nurses was higher than the average and statistically significant, but the situation of the pleasant life was lower than the average and insignificant. Overall, the score of effort-reward imbalance in female nurses is 1.09, which is higher than the cutting point and showed the imbalance of effort-reward in nurses. The findings also showed that a negative and significant correlation between the positive psychological components with job burnout (r=-0.65, p<0.01), as well as, a positive and significant correlationbetween effort-reward imbalance with job burnout (r=0.458, p<0.01). In addition, the results of multiple regression analysis showed that 45% of variances of nurse`s job burnout predicted (explained) by the meaning life,the effort-reward imbalance and the engagement life.
