Given that maintaining these four dimensions of nursing students as important components of mental health will be effective on their professional improvement in health care organizations.

Methods: The sample of this descriptive-analytical study was 184 nursing and midwifery students of Kurdistan University of Medical Sciences, and the research tool was a "Ware & Sherbourne Health Survey" questionnaire containing 36 closed-ended questions. Data were analyzed by SPSS 22 using Kolmogorov-Smirnov test, Pearson correlation coefficient, independent t-test and one-way ANOVA.
