Background and Aim: Psychological distress and burnout can have negative effects on the well-being of the professionals and also on the quality of care they provide to patients. The aim of this study was to compare burnout and job satisfaction of nurses working in internal, surgery, psychiatry and Burn wards. Materials and Methods: A self-reported socio-demographic questionnaire was distributed among 180 nurses from psychiatry, burn, medical and surgery ward.The Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI) was considered to measure burnout. Results: 25% of the participants met study criteria for burnout. MBI scores in different wards showed that decline in Personal Accomplishment (PA) was significantly more in burn wards and increase in emotional exhaustion (EE) was significantly higher in psychiatry wards. Male nurses were significantly more depersonalized than female nurses. Nurses working at night shifts were significantly more depersonalized. Conclusion: Special attention should be paid to nurses working in psychiatric and burn wards due to high psychological stress associated with working in these wards. Moreover, male nurses and nurses working at night shifts are more prone to burnout.
