Background and purpose: Female nurses are exposed to many problems due to their working situation. This will make them vulnerable to stress, burnout, and emotional exhaustion. In this study we structurally analyzed burnout among nurses while considering acceptance, commitment, and emotion regulation. Material and Methods: This descriptive-correlational study was conducted in May 2013 and included 180 nurses working in a hospital located in city of Isfahan. A total of 119 cases was randomly selected using Morgan table. Maslach Burnout Inventory (MBI), Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT), and Cognitive Emotion Regulation Questionnaire (CERQ) were used to collect the data. Data was then analyzed using SPSS and Lisrel program. Results: The results indicated a significant correlation between burnout, emotion regulation, and acceptance and commitment. Structural equation modeling showed direct relationships between burnout and ACT and emotion regulation and ACT. We also found ACT with a mediation effect in the relationship between burnout and emotion regulation. Conclusion: This study showed emotion regulation and ACT as the main indicators for burnout.
