The second article seeks to investigate the compassion satisfaction, the cause of fatigue as well as the reason for the development of nurse burnout. The third article evaluates how working conditions enhance the development of job dissatisfaction and nurse fatigue. The fourth article evaluates the significance of 12-hour policy on reducing the occurrence of nurse burnout and fatigue.
