Objective (s): Burnout syndrome in workplace as a result of stress full job conditions such as nursing is evident and can be a serious threat to health of nurses and decrease the quality of healthcare. The aim of this study was to assess burnout among nurses in selected hospitals of Tehran University of Medical Sciences.

Results: The results showed that the mean burnout score among nurses in hospitals was 1.99. The mean score for emotional exhaustion was 2.26, for depersonalization was 1.44, and for personal accomplishment was 2.02. The study findings indicated that more educated nurses (p=0.004), less experienced nurses (p= 0.04), unofficial and contractual employment (p= 0.004) and working in psychiatric hospital (p= 0.012) increased the risk of burnout syndrome in nurses.
Conclusion: The burnout among nurses was not high, but the need for more attention to those who were at greater risk seems necessary.
