Introduction: Considering the importance of human resources as the most precious possession of societies, recognition of effective factors on human resources, productivity, and efficiency in each and every organization can be useful and efficacious in increasing productivity and competiveness of an organization. In addition, in Iran, personnel incuriosity toward organization problems and difficulties is an issue encountered by most organizations.

The SPSS 18 and simple and multivariate linear regression were used for data analysis.
Results: The results showed there was a negative meaningful relationship between organizational indifference and human resources productivity and efficiency in nurses )r = -0.607, P < 0.001). Adding only one unit in organizational indifference will reduce -1325 in human resources productivity. The mean age of the samples was 36.2 ± 7.5 and 58% were female.
