A descriptive correlational study was done to determine if a relationship exists between self-actualization scores and burnout syndrome symptoms in critical care nurses. Two hundred and forty-nine critical care staff nurses, who were also members of the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses, received a mailed questionnaire. The data collection instruments were a tool designed to measure self-actualization. The self-actualization tool was a measure of two variables, time competence and inner directedness. Objective data obtained from each respondent included age, sex, length of time in nursing, length of time in present position, and highest nursing degree attained.
