This study aimed to evaluate the comparison of exhaustion, ADHD, self-esteem, impulsivity, suicidal tendencies and quality of life as well as depression and anxiety in nurses group and comparison group in Korea.


A set of questionnaires was provided to a total of 97 nurses and 310 other participants as a comparison group. All subjects were evaluated using the Beck’s Depression Inventory, Beck’s Anxiety Inventory, Maslach Burnout Inventory, Korean Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder Scales, Rosenberg’s Self-esteem Inventory, Baratt’ Impulsivity Scale, Beck’s Scale of Suicide Ideation, and Quality of Life Scale.


The results of this study indicated that the nurses were more likely to show depression, anxiety, exhaustion, impulsivity, and quality of life. In the multiple regression analysis, nurses group was the most correlated factor in exhaustion. In addition, anxiety, depression, impulsivity, ADHD, self-esteem, and life satisfaction were also correlated to exhaustion.


Timely and effective evaluation and treatment of impulsivity, as well as depression and anxiety were required for nurses.
