Purpose: Taiwan’s clinical nurses has faced a challenge of increased workloads and decreased morale due to the cost containment of the national healthcare insurance policies and the dramatic changes of patient demands. Nurses often feel stressed and sometimes burntout, which may further compromise their health. The purpose of this study is to explore the relationships among job stress, burnout and physical-mental health of clinical nurses in Taiwan.

Methods: This study adopts a descriptive correlational design and is conducted cross-sectional survey. The study surveys 650 clinical registered nurses who are employed over three months at a medical center and a regional hospital in southern Taiwan. The questionnaire contains four parts, including basic demographics, Effort-Reward Imbalance scale, Copenhagen Burnout Inventory, and General Health Scale. The data will be analyzed through SPSS 19.0 using strategies including descriptive statistics, bivariate analysis, chi-square test , one-way ANOVA, and hierarchical multiple regression analysis.

Results: This study is currently under investigation and is expected to be completed in three months. The results of the study will help to understand the relationships among job stress, burnout and physical-mental health of clinical nurses. The nurses’ job stress, burnout and physical-mental health from two different levels of hospital will be compared.  

Conclusion: We will be able to provide suggestions to hospital administrators, nurse managers, and occupational health professionals. It is anticipated to find evidence to support positive and healthy work environment and to develop health promotion strategies for the frontline nursing workers.
