Burnout has become a documented phenomenon in nursing, as well as in many other disciplines. When burnout exists, however, it exacts a high toll on the organization in terms of productivity, quality of performance, and loss of future potential. This is particularly true when burnout occurs in the management ranks. In this essay, the current literature on the subject of burnout is reviewed and summarized. Based on the review of the literature, the writer delineates the implications management burnout has for nurse administrators, and makes recommendations regarding identification and management of burnout in nurse managers.
