Aims: Patience is a mental characteristic and an internal consistency, the result of which includes management of emotions, capability to endure hardships, and diligence in works. This research aimed at determining the role of patience with mediating self-differentiation in emotional regulation and perceived stress among nurses.
Instruments & Methods: This research is a descriptive-correlational study with a path analysis model that was conducted among 200 nurses in 2015, who worked at hospitals of Tehran and were selected through available sampling method. The instruments used for evaluating research variables included Skowron’s differentiation of self-inventory (DSI), Gross and John’s Emotion Regulation Scale (ER), Cohen’s Perceived Stress Scale (PSS), and Hossein Sabet’s Patience Scale. The data were analyzed by SPSS AMOS 21 software, using Pearson correlation coefficient test and Structural Equation Modeling.
Findings: The pattern was in a good position to explain and fit. Patience had a direct, significant, and negative relationship with perceived stress (p=0.001), but it did not have an indirect relationship with perceived stress by mediating self-differentiation (p=0.69). Also, patience directly had a significant positive relationship with emotional regulation (p=0.04), but it did not have an indirect relationship with emotional regulation by mediating self-differentiation.
Conclusion: Patience directly and without mediating self-differentiation is effective on emotional regulation and perceived stress of nurses.
