Results: In this research, 400 patients were studied. The average age of the military nurses were 36/45 ± 8/34 years and 69 percent of the participants were male. Burnout in the emotional exhaustion and depersonalization dimensions were respectively, 22% and 38% and in the personal achievement dimension was 100%. Also, a significant relationship was observed between the dimensions of burnout and some demographic information such as age, gender, work experience, employment status and marital status (P<0.001).
