Research statistical society included all nurses in Abdanan, Darehshahar, and Dehloran in Ilam Province of Iran (N=198). Hundred and thirty one people were selected using Cochrane's formula and random sampling. Data was collected via professional behavior questionnaire and organizational commitement questionnaire. Data was analyzed via descriptive and analytical statistics.

Also there were positive and significant relationships between professional behavior and nurses' emotional commitement (p<0/01, r=0/435), nurses' continuous commitement (p<0/01, r=0/506) and nurses' normative commitement (p<0/01, r=0/519).
