The purpose of this study was to determine the relationship between nurse empowerment and burnout syndrome.

The first phase used cluster sampling, the second phase used a proportional random sampling, and the last phase used simple random sampling. Data were collected by the questioner and were analyzed by using Pearson correlation with a significance level of 0.01. The result showed empowerment was significantly related to burnout syndrome.
