Abstract: 

Introduction: Within the nursing profession work stress, self-Esteem and burnout are widely present and problematic and can be affecting on caring of patient, physical and mental health of nurses. Thus, we studied the association between Self -Esteem and Burnout in Nurses of Hospitals of Ahvaz Jundishapur University of Medical Sciences.
Methods: This study was a Cross sectional study accomplished at university hospitals in Ahvaz during Jan-Mar 2009. A total of 92 nurses from the 100 working at the hospital at the time answered a self-administered questionnaire including the Maslach Burnout Inventory and Cooper - Smith inventory of self-esteem. Data were analyzed using SPSS and appropriate descriptive statistically tests and Spearman Coefficient of Correlation.
Results: All the nurses have a mean age 32.44±6.27 years and 87% them were female. The mean score was 31.98±11.1 for the Emotional Exhaustion subscale, 9.46±5.15 for the Depersonalization subscale and 36.73±9.68 for the Personal Accomplishment subscale. Correlation analysis also revealed linearly negative relationship between self-esteem and emotional exhaustion (r=-0.1, P=0.32) and its severity (r=-0.087, P=0.4). A linear relationship was found between self - esteem and severity (r=-0.046, P=0.66) of depersonalization. A positively linear relationship (very low) was also found to exist between frequency (r=0.05, P=0.58) and severity (r=0.12, P=0.25) of lack of personal accomplishment with self esteem.
Conclusion: It is necessary to consider nurses having the characteristics shown as the correlates of burnout in this study as a target group, to screen periodically the Burnout status and self-esteem and improve their working conditions.
