Therefore, the study of empathy of nurses with patients and their attitude toward organ donation is one of the main goals of nursing education and this study aimed to determine the relationship between nurses' empathy with patients and their attitude toward organ donation in special section of Isfahan province hospitals.

For gathering the data, questionnaire of empathy of nurses with patients designed by Jefferson and organ donation attitude questionnaire of Tihana were used.
Results: The mean and standard deviation of empathy of nurses with patients was (39.26 ± 2.37) and the mean and standard deviation nurses' attitude toward organ donation was (50.46 ± 34.6). Also, the relationship between the components of adopting an empathic view (p=0, 002, R=0, 667), giving empathic care (p=0, 000, R=0, 781), self-care instead of being sick (p=0, 000, R=0, 598) and the empathy variable of nurses with patients (p=0, 000, R=0, 663) with Attitude with organ donation were significant. In total, %56 of the variance of nurses' attitudes towards the organ donation was explained by the variables of the research model obtained from the structural equation test.
