Abstract: 

Introduction: Academic burnout is the feeling of inadequacy and mental fatigue induced by chronic stress in students lacking the necessary resources to carry out their duties and tasks assigned to them. This study was conducted to determine the status of academic burnout and related factors.
Method: In this cross-sectional study 264 students at nursing, anesthesia, operating room and medical emergencies were randomly selected. Demographic information - Education and Academic burnout was used to collect data. Reliability and validity of the scale was determined with Cronbach's. After entering data into SPSS version 16, we used descriptive statistics and logistic regression.
Results: Mean (
±SD) score of the academic burnout of students participated in the study was (28.52±15.84) and overall 24.1% and 46.6% of students had high and moderate level of academic burnout respectively. Based on the results obtained from multivariate GPA (grade point average) in emotional exhaustion (OR:0.75 95% CI:0.58-0.96) and cynicism subscales (OR:0.73 95% CI:0.56-0.96) were significantly related to academic burnout and in inefficacy subscale GPA (OR:0.68 95% CI:0.5-0.92), residing at personal home (OR:4.10 95%CI:1.27-13.20) and studying anesthesiology (OR:3.19 95% CI:1.12-9.10) were significantly related to academic burnout (P<0.05).
Conclusion: Based on the findings of the present study a significant percentage of students were experiencing academic burnout. GPA had a protection role against academic burnout and studying anesthesia and living in your own home were risk factors for academic burnout. GPA scores for the two subscales were significantly related to emotional exhaustion and doubts, therefore planning to improve academic burnout can improve the academic performance of the students.
