The statistical population of the study consisted of all staff of Poursina Hospital in Rasht. 403 employees were selected by quota sampling method. The selected samples answered the Mentoring Function Questionnaire, Organizational Justice Questionnaire and Organizational Commitment Questionnaire. Data analysis was performed using Pearson correlation coefficient and structural equation modeling through SPSS and AMOS. To analyze the mediating relationships, the Bootstrap method with Preacher and Hayes' Macro (2008) program was used.
Results: Fit indicators showed that the proposed mediation model has a good fit with the data and its functions and subscales have a positive and direct effect on organizational commitment . Results show that there is positive and significant relationship between mentoring functions and organizational commitment (p<0.01,r=0.276) also ,between mentoring and organizational justice respectively (p<0.01,r=0.711).in this regards,between organizational justice and organizational commitment,there is positive and significant relationship(p<0.01,r=0.305). findings indicate that organizational justice has immediate role between mentoring function  and organizational commitment.
Conclusions: According to the research results, guidance has a significant effect on organizational justice and organizational commitment of employees. In addition, organizational justice and its subscales mediate the role of guidance and organizational commitment of employees.
