This study investigates convergent factors associated with occupational stress among General Hospital Administrative Staff(GHAS). The survey was administered to 221 staffs from 11 general hospitals located in J city from November 1st, 2016 to January 31st, 2017, using structured self-administered questionaries without respondents' personal information. The hierarchical multiple regression analysis shows the following results. The occupational stress of respondents turned out to be significantly higher in following groups: a group in which organizational justice-distributive is lower, a group in which self-esteem is lower, a group in which self-efficacy is lower. The results show explanatory power of 39.5%. The results of the study indicate that the efforts, to increase organizational justice-distributive, to increase self-esteem, to increase self- efficacy, are required to decrease the occupational stress among GHAS. These results are expected to be utilized for organizational and personnel management to reduce occupational stress in GHAS. In the following study, the research of additional factors and the analysis of structural equation model about the occupational stress among GHAS will be needed.
