The assessment of connection between level of emotional control, social support and profession burning out among nurses working in warsaw's hospitals. Material and methods: 42 nurses (aged 27-57, mean of practice - 18 years) working in Warsaw hospitals. Methods: Maslach Burn out Iventory - Ch.Maslach; Questionaire of Emotional Control - J.Brzezi?ski; Questionaire of Social Support - K.Kmiecik. Statistical analysis showed, that exanimated nurses manifest only one negative load of burning out - emotional exhausted. Despite it they feel job satisfaction and not manifested depersonalisation. All loads of emotional control correlate negative (except control of situation and emotional excitability, which are positive) with emotional exhausted (correlations about -0,5). Nurses, who manifest higher level of emotional control (especially emotional resistant) less feel professional burn out. Job satisfaction is higher, when nurses have rational (not emotional) motivation (r=0,5) and less level of emotional excitability (r=-0,43). Correlation between support and burning out is also negative. There is high corelation. between level of support and emotional exhausted (r=-0,64). As more support (from family members or coworkers) receive nurses as feel less emotional exhausted. There are not significance differences between kind of support and sources of it. There is a connection between emotional control also social support and profession burning out. In practice results could used in prevention program for nurses profession. It's important to learn how to shape emotional control and how important is receiving social support - in this way they could reduce professional burning out.
