Background & Aims: The role of woman on the one hand as a wife or mother and the other hand as a nurse who working in a stressful environment exposes them to psychological stress of the responsibility.

The purpose of the current research was to investigate the relationship between thought rumination and worry as mediators of self-compassion and depression among married female nurses in Ahvaz.

Material & Methods: This research was a descriptive-correlational study and 193 married female nurses were selected using stratified proportional sampling method from Imam Khomeini, Golestan, Shafa, Arya and Mehr hospitals of Ahvaz,Iran. Participants completed Beck Depression Inventory-II, Ruminative Response Scale, Penn State Worry Questionnaire, and Self-compassion Scale-short form. The data were analyzed using Pearson correlation coefficient and concurrent hierarchical regression analysis and using SPSS-16 software.

Results: Pearson correlation coefficients showed that there were significant negative correlations between self-compassion with depression, rumination and worry variables and there were significant positive correlations between worry and  rumination with depression variables (p<0.05). Also, hierarchical regression analysis by Baron and Kenny method and Sobel test showed that worry and thought rumination are mediators between self-compassion and depression.

Conclusion: In general, the results largely support our models that self-compassion is associated with lower levels of depressive symptoms among women, but the thought ruminations and worries have involved between self-compassion and depressive symptoms.
