Background & Aim: Occupational burnout is one of the most common consequences of occupational stress. Nurses are orderly, caring, and motivated people before entering the nursing job, who, after encountering workplace stress and problems, tend to leave their careers. Therefore, this study aimed to determine the relationship between occupational burnout and the intention to leave in nurses working in the training hospitals of Sanandaj, Iran in 2015.

Data collection tools included occupation and demographic characteristics sheet, Maslach Job Burnout Questionnaire, and Attwod and Hinshaw intention to leave Prediction Scale. Data analysis was performed using Mann-Whitney U, Kruskal-Wallis test, and Spearman’s correlation coefficient at the significance level of 0.05.
