Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the frequency distribution and associated factors of burnout syndrome among nurses in Alzahra Hospital, Isfahan, Iran.Methods: This was a cross-sectional study conducted on 100 selected nurses in Alzahra Hospital in 2010, Iran. The subjects filled maslach burnout inventory (MBI). The data was analyzed by Student's t-test and analysis of variance (ANOVA) in SPSS18 software.Findings: The mean age of nurses was 37.35 ± 12.13 years. Our results showed significant differences in burnout scores between nurses in different departments, i.e. the scores of nurses in ICU and emergency departments were significantly higher than those in dialysis and orthopedic departments (P = 0.01). Student's t-test revealed the scores of women to be significantly higher than men (P = 0.0001). In addition, ANOVA showed a work experience lower than 10 years to be associated with lower burnout scores. Conclusion: Based on our results and previous studies, sex, work experience and site of working in the hospital are important factors affecting burnout syndrome in nurses.
