Abstract:

A descriptive-correlational study was conducted to determine the relationship between burnout in neonatal intensive care nurses and variables in three categories 1 personal resource, 2 role-related, and 3 personal perception. The subjects consisted of 125 nurses selected from a random sample of members of the Nurses Association of the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists who had identified themselves as neonatal intensive care nurses. The dependent variable of burnout was measured by the Staff Burnout Scale for Health Professionals. Information pertaining to the independent variables was obtained by use of a demographic data sheet completed by the subjects. Analysis of variance was used to analyze the data.
