Background & Aim: Recognizing and modifying organizational commitment and its related factors is important. It seems that nurses&apos attitudes towards learning organizations influence their organizational commitment. This study aimed to determine the relationship between nurses&apos attitudes towards learning organizations and organizational commitment.

Methods & Materials: In this descriptive-correlative study, 719 nurses working in Rasht educational hospitals were recruited to the study. We gathered data using the Porter organizational commitment questionnaire and the Jeong learning organization questionnaire. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and the Spearman and t-tests in the SPSS-18.

Results: Most of the nurses were female (94.7%) and registered (35.3%). The mean (SD) age of the nurses was 32.13 (6.98). The mean (SD) of the organizational commitment was 27.10 (42.50). The mean (SD) of the learning organization was 92.72 (10.04). The relationship between the organizational commitment and nurses&apos attitudes towards learning organizations was statistically significant (r=0.482 P<0.0001).

Conclusion: It seems improving nurses&apos attitudes towards learning organizations may result in better organizational commitments.
