Social health is one of the most important health indicators of each country and can be influenced by different factors. The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between self-efficacy and social dimensions of nurses.

A sample of 100 were selected using randomized sampling method. Data were collected using the Key Health Social Questionnaire and Sherer Self-efficacy Questionnaire. Data were entered into SPSS-22 software and analyzed using Pearson correlation, independent t-test and one-way ANOVA.
Results: The results showed that there was a significant relationship between nurses' self-efficacy and their social health (p <0.05). Also, there was no significant relationship between self-efficacy with demographic variables such as age, sex, education, residence and income level (p> 0.05).
