|Title:||Job burnout in psychiatric and medical nurses in Isfahan, Islamic Republic of Iran|
|Abstract:||By means of the Maslach Burnout Inventory, we examined job burnout among randomly selected nurses working on psychiatric [55 nurses] and medical units [51 nurses] at 2 universities in Isfahan during 2003. Psychiatric nurses experienced a greater degree of emotional exhaustion hospitals than the medical nurses [P < 0.05]. Significant positive correlation was noted between age, years of experience and frequency of on- calls and emotional exhaustion for the psychiatric nurses. Frequency of on- calls was also significantly associated with a sense of non- accomplishment. Longer duration of service was accompanied by higher degree of emotional depersonalization for the medical nurses|
