In the study, it was objected to investigate the associations between psychological capital, career planning and occupational commitment. For this purpose, a practical study carried out among nurses working at university hospitals of Necmettin Erbakan and Selcuk Universities in Konya, Turkey was analyzed, and the results obtained were summarized. The data were collected with the scales of psychological capital, career planning and occupational commitment. Descriptive statistics were calculated using mean, standard deviation, frequency, regression and Pearson’s correlation analyses. Significance level was accepted as p >0.01, and in light of these findings, a model was developed. According to this model; psychological capital is seen in a weak and positive correlation with occupational commitment. Psychological capital sum and sum of individual career planning stages are in a positive and medium level correlation with each other. A weak and positive correlation is determined between the sum of occupational commitment extents and sum of career planning stages. However, continuance commitment did not show a significant correlation with career planning.
