Burnout is a common occurrence in the nursing field. This study measured the levels of burnout among the nursing staff, consisting of registered nurses (RNs), licensed practical nurses (LPNs), and nursing assistants (NAs) in the GLTC of a rural Department of Veterans Affairs Medical Center in relation to their age and years in the nursing field. Two instruments were used to gather data: A demographic tool and the Maslach Burnout Inventory-Human Service Survey (MBI-HSS). The sample size (N) was 67. The mean age of the sample size was 46.5. This study found that the RNs have a higher level of burnout compared to the LPNs and the NAs; the LPNs have the lowest level of burnout and the NAs have a moderate level of burnout. Age has a significant inverse correlation with emotional exhaustion, that is, as age goes up, emotional exhaustion goes down.
