The challenge of today’s healthcare environment, especially with the effect of the Covid-19 pandemic, is not only about task burdens or degrading work/life balance but about immerse expectations from all shareholders, including governments, patients, and administrations. Thus, even if nurses are trained and the most experienced professionals, dealing with these challenges is related to different factors like training and practice level, age, and family support. So, the main aim of this paper is to find out the effects of demographic characteristics of nurses on burnout and its dimensions. The sample is 71 nurses from Izmir / Turkey. The survey results were analyzed with t-test, variance analysis (ANOVA), and confirmatory factor analysis. The results show that gender, education level, and age factors are varying between nurse groups to some level. On the other hand, tenure, and marital status are not significantly related to burnout. These results proofed that individual factors are more important than organizational and family factors.
