The study aimed at examining the relationship between psychological flexibility, pro-sociality and occupational stress among nurses of International hospital Kampala. The study adopted a quantitative study design which was correlation in nature with a population of 75 nurses. Simple random sampling technique was used to draw a sample of 63 respondents from the population. Data was collected from respondents using self-administered standard questionnaire and entered in the computer for analysis through Statistical Package for Social Science (SPSS) software version 23. Descriptive statistics showed that 57.1% of the respondents were female and 42.9% were male, majority were between 21-30 years (63.5%). Results from Pearson product-moment correlation coefficient (r) further indicated that there was a significant positive relationship between pro-sociality and occupational stress, (r=.560**, p=.000), however, there was no significant relationship between psychological flexibility and occupational stress, (r=.-010, p= .936) as well as psychological flexibility and pro-sociality, (r=.031, p= .810). Therefore, the present study provides a basis and implications for further investigation on the relationship between psychological flexibility, pro-sociality and occupational stress among nurses in different hospitals. It was recommended that the administration of International Hospital Kampala should lay down strategies of improving psychological well-being of nurses to improve their pro-social behaviours. This is intended to improve the helping behaviours of nurses in the hospitals to patients.
