Professional stress is related to mental issues such as anxiety, depression, burnout and lower subjective well-being.

In this study are used Questionnaire of Demographic Data, Questionnaire of Burnout Intensity, Stress Resiliance Questionnaire, Depression, Anxiety and Stress Scale, Satisfaction With Life Scale, Job-related Affective Well- being Scale. The obbtained results suggest that 36% of nurses show burnout signes and that there isn't difference in burnout frequency depending ot the ward they work at. There is statisticly significant difference in anxiety, depression, stress, stress resiliance, life satisfaction and pleasant emotions related to job, but there is significant difference in the frequency of experiencing unpleasant emotions related to job in the way that oncology nurses more frequently experience unpleasant emotions than dermatovenerology nurses. Demographic and job related variables aren't significant predictors of burnout intensity. Statisticly significant predictors are stress resiliance and pleasant emotions at work which are negativley related and unpleasant emotions at work which are positivley related to burnout intensity.
