Abstract

Background: Higher education students, especially nursing students, have drawn more attention as a group that is vulnerable to the risk of developing burnout syndrome.Purpose: To test the psychometric properties of the Oldenburg Burnout Inventory in Nursing (OLBI-N).Methods: The OLBI-N validity and reliability was tested in a sample of 476 nursing students. The validity was assessed with explorative and confirmative factor analyses. For hypothesis testing, we evaluated the correlation between burnout and academic self-efficacy.Results: Two factors (exhaustion and disengagement) were identified, and the confirmative factor analysis of the OLBI-N yielded a good fit. The OLBI-N was significantly correlated with academic self-efficacy (r = .29, -.37, p < .01).Conclusions: The OLBI-N is a valid, reliable questionnaire for measuring burnout among nursing students.
