Background & Aim: Positive impact on each area of work and family can be one of the causes of occupational well-being and success in the workplace. The purpose of this study was to investigate the role of work-family facilitation on job well-being and occupational success among nurses.

Material & Methods: This study was a causal-comparative research. The study population included nurses of Amir-Almomenin hospital of Ahvaz that were selected through census method by census method in 2015. Work-Family Facilitation (Holbrook), Job Well-Being (Parker & Hyett) and Perceived Occupational Success (Grebner, Elfering & Semmer) questionnaires were used for data collecting. Data were analyzed based on Pearson's correlation coefficient and multiple regression analysis by using SPSS- 22 software.

Results: The study results showed that both of work-family and family-work facilitation, were able to predict job well-being and occupational success of nurses.

Conclusion: According to the positive contribution of work-family facilitation on nurses’ success and well-being, managers and administrators should adopt programs for increasing balance and positive impact on each of the two areas.
