This study examines the association between burnout and organizational commitment in nephrology nurses working in hemodialysis. A cross-sectional study of all nurses working in a hospital hemodialysis unit was conducted. Low to medium level of burnout and a high level of organizational commitment were documented. A significant negative correlation was found between burnout and organizational commitment. Burnout was significantly higher among nurses who had made a career shift in the past, and lower levels of burnout were documented among married nurses. In a multivariate analysis, lower levels of burnout and a higher number of children were significantly associated with higher organizational commitment. Burnout is a negative independent predictor for organizational commitment. Inter ventions focused on reducing burnout among nurses should be implemented to improve organizational commitment.
