Introduction: Job burnout, in addition to the adverse effects of physical and psychological health and the various dimensions of the quality of personal and professional life of nurses, has a lot of costs for the organization. The aim of this study was to determine the relationship between job burnout and quality of life of nurses.
Methods: In this descriptive-analytical study, 175 nurses working in Khatam-ol-Anbia Gonbad-e-Kavous Hospital were included in the study by the available method. The data gathering tool was a three-part questionnaire including demographic information, 26-item quality of life (WHOQOL), and Maslach burnout. The collected data were analyzed using SPSS22 and t test, Chi-Square and analysis of variance tests.
Results: The mean age and work experience were 38.34 and 13.81, respectively. In this study, 92.54% of the participants had bachelor degree, 88.81% were married, 62.69% were women, 88.06% were in shift working and 26.12% were in the emergency department. The highest and lowest mean scores of quality of life dimensions were related to physical and environmental health (66.78 and 63.26, respectively). There was a negative correlation between environmental health and overall quality of life with overtime hours (r= -0.193, r= -0.169). The highest and lowest mean scores of occupational burnout dimensions were related to emotional exhaustion and involvement (frequency: 68.7 and 16.4, severity: 75.4 and 19.4). All dimensions of life quality were not correlated with personality frequency and severity of emotional exhaustion.
Conclusion: Regarding the inverse relationship between job burnout and quality of life, by presenting and implementing various management solutions and identifying effective factors in improving the quality of life of nurses, job burnout can be reduced which will lead to increase productivity.
