This systematic review investigated the prevalence of burnout in emergency nurses and specific (individual and work related) determinants of burnout in this population.

Seventeen studies were included in this review. "On average 26% of the emergency nurses suffered from burnout. Individual factors such as demographic variables, personality characteristics and coping strategies were predictive of burnout. Work related factors such as exposure to traumatic events, job characteristics and organizational variables were also found to be determinants of burnout in this population". The authors discuss the implications of these findings.
