The study was carried out to determine burnout and its associated factors in Operating Room Nurses from Qom teaching hospitals.

Material and methods: A descriptive analytical study was developed. The participations were selected using census sampling methods. A total of 87 nurses out of 110 were contributed in this study. Data collected including Demographic information and Maslach burnout inventory (MBI) using questionnaires. Then the whole information was entered to SPSS 18 statistical software and analyze with descriptive statistical tests, chi-square T-test and Pearson correlation coefficient.

Results: From 110 population of this research, 52 of them (59.8%) were women and the remaining were men. Mean and standard deviation of age were 33.82 7.66. The Most of participations from perspective The Most of participations from perspective of emotional exhaustion (96.5% frequency, 50.6% intensity), depersonalization (89.3% frequency, 63.5% intensity) and personal accomplishment (100% frequency , 100% intensity) were in low level. There had also been significant correlation between gender, number of work shifts and night shifts at a month with some aspects of burnout.The results of multiple Logistic Regression model shows that gender Variable is the predictable factor of emotional exhaustion and depersonalization.Also in prediction of personal accomplishment, number of shift significant correlation was only with personal accomplishment (OR:1.07, CI:1-1.15).
