Abstract

Background: In this study we analyzed job burnout aspects of male and female nurses.

Materials and Method: Sixty nurses (including 32 women and 28 men) were randomly selected and responded to Maslach (MBI) job questionnaire.

Results: Our findings demonstrate that there is significant difference between male and female nurses in emotional exhaustion (p<0.021). Women experience emotional exhaustion more than men. Regarding other aspects of job burnout there is no significant difference between them.

Conclusion: The findings of this study demonstrate that job burnout is high among nursing society. However, to avoid job burnout among nurses should be paid attention to them.
