Background:

The purpose of this study was to examine the mediating effects of mindfulness on the relationships between self-esteem and burnout among nurses.

Methods:

A descriptive cross-sectional survey design was conducted using purposive sampling of 132 nurses at two university hospitals in J city and C city. It was analyzed with descriptive statistics, Pearson correlation and multiple regression analysis using SPSS 20.0 program.

Results:

There were significant correlations among self-esteem, mindfulness and burnout. Self-esteem and mindfulness were negatively correlated with burnout among nurses. Mindfulness acts as a mediator in explaining relationship between self-esteem and burnout.

Conclusions:

Our results provide evidence for the role of mindfulness in the relationship between self-esteem and burnout in professional nurses. Mindfulness appears to be a protective factor against nurses’ burnout. The results of this study suggest that mindfulness training intervention suitable for nurses would be useful to reduce nurses’ high levels of job burnout and risk of turnover and increase patients’ satisfaction with their care.
