Nurses experienced median (27.5% vs 32.8%) and high level (19.0% vs 24.8%) emotional exhaustion of MBI was decreased in 2012 when compared with 2005 (χ2 =11.46, p=.003). Nurses reported higher burnout of personal accomplishments in 2012 (15.4% vs 22.7%,χ2 =7.96, p=.019) than 2005. Nurses experienced similarity high level (91.5% vs 87.9%,χ2=5.54, p=.063) depersonalization of MBI.

Conclusion: This study demonstrates that the prevalence of MAE was decreased, but still over 50% nurses reported experience. Although nurses’ emotional exhaustion of burnout wwas diminished, but nurses still experienced high personal accomplishments and depersonalization of burnout.
