Keywords:Burnout Syndrome; Nursing; Professional Diseases.
Objective: Burnout syndrome (BS) is related to a gradual process of exhaustion and demotivation, characterized by physical and psychological symptoms. The worker loses the sense of his relationship to work. It aims to identify the risks factors of BS in nurses. Method: This is an integrative review of research literature held in electronic library SciELO and in LILACS and BDENF databases. From the articles found, there was a final sample of 13 articles. Results: The data revealed that the major risk factors for the development of the BS are: excessive workload, poor pay, poor conditions of work and emotional instability. Conclusion: In view of this, it is concluded that improvement actions should be thought through activities in education, management and administration enhancing the work quality of nurses in their daily lives. Thus, it is suggested the need for preparation of informative booklets that discuss this syndrome and the creation of conversation rounds among professionals to share their experiences and seek solutions to the identified factors.
