Objectives: As attachment styles are crucial to the communicative features specially intimacy, satisfaction, and commitment, the relation-ship between adult attachment styles with job satisfaction and job stress was investigated in nurses in the Isfahan state hospitals.

Method: In this cross-sectional study, 160 nurses (95 women and 65 men) working in the state hospitals in Isfahan were selected by a stepwise randomized sampling as subjects of the study. Mean age was 33 years (SD=2.7 for men and 1.9 for women) in men and women. Data were collected using Adult Attachment Inventory, Job Satisfaction-Dissatisfaction Scale, and Job Stress Scale and then analyzed by correlational and stepwise regression statistical analysis.

Results: Mean total scores for subjects with secure, avoidant, and ambivalent attachment styles were measured to be respectively 11.1 (SD=5), 9.00 (SD=4.2), and 8.1 (4.4). Correlation coefficient between job stress and scores for secure and avoidant attachment styles were
- 0.71 (p<0.05) and 0.69 (p<0.05) respectively.

Conclusion: Level of stress is less in subjects with secure attachment styles than in subjects with avoidant and ambivalent attachment styles. Attachment style can well predict job satisfaction and job stress.
