Burnout is a widespread phenomenon characterized by a reduction in energy that manifests in exhaustion, lack of inspiration, and feelings of frustration which may lead to reduced work efficacy and multiple absences. In the nursing profession, long hours, the pressure of quick decision-making, and the stress of caring for patients who may have poor outcomes may contribute to burnout. This integrative review was conducted to identify variables that contribute to nurse burnout and discover strategies organizations can implement to reduce or prevent nurse burnout.
