ABSTRACT
This study aimed to assess the effect of web-based life skills education on burnout in nurses. Participants were 104 nurses who had moderate to high burnout. The intervention group received web-based life skills education over 10 weeks. A week later intervention, burnout level was measured in control and intervention groups. Comparison of mean burnout score in the intervention group before and after the intervention showed a significant reduction in total burnout score, and in emotional exhaustion and depersonalization, and a significant increase in personal accomplishment.
