Introduction: Leadership style can effect on nurses’ retention, job stress, job satisfaction and quality of work life. However, studies have shown different findings. This study aimed to determine the correlation of head nurses’ leadership style from nurses’ perspective and nurses’ job stress. Materials and Method: This method of this study was descriptive-correlational. In this study, 120 nurses working in hospitals affiliated with Alborz University of Medical Sciences by random sampling were selected. For data collection the “Multifactor Leadership Questionnaire”, and “Health and Safety Executive Questionnaire” were used. Later face and content validity and internal reliability were measured. Data were analyzed by SPSS/20. Findings: Dominant head nurses’ leadership style from 52% nurses’ perspective was transactional leadership style and job stress of 73% nurses was low. The results showed that nurses’ job stress in transformational and transactional leadership style from nurses’ perspective was low. Transformational leadership style with job stress (r=-0.35, P<0.001) and transactional leadership style with job stress had a significant negative correlation (r=-0.32, P<0.001). Conclusion: Concerning the negative relationship between transactional and transformational leadership style with job stress, appropriate leadership styles of nurse managers could result in reduction of stress. It is recommended that nurse managers use transformational and transactional leadership styles. Managers also need to reduce stress-causing situations.
