Introduction: The management of job-related stress and the improvement of self-efficacy in health care workers are essential for promoting health-care services. The aim of this study was to determine the efficiency of stress management group therapy in job stress and self-efficacy of nurses.

Method: This was a quasi-experimental study conducted on 20 nurses (of Nohom Day Hospital in Torbat Heydariyeh) who were selected through convenience sampling and assigned into two intervention and control groups randomly. The intervention group participated in 8 sessions of stress management group therapy and the control group received no intervention. Data analyses were performed using descriptive statistics and independent and dependent t-test by SPSS 21.

Results: The mean and standard deviation of participants' age in the intervention and control group were 38.00±6.24, 36.00±8.5, respectively. After the intervention, there was a significant difference in the mean scores of job stress and self-efficacy between control and intervention groups (p< 0.0001).

Conclusion: It can be concluded that performing stress management group therapy among nurses can reduce job stress and increase self-efficacy. Therefore, it is recommended that this useful and effective approach be employed for empowering the workforce in the health system.
