From: A cross-sectional study exploring the relationship between burnout, absenteeism, and job performance among American nurses

Predictor OR (95% CI) P-value
 Burned out (vs. not) 1.03 (0.61–1.74) 0.91
 Fatigue (for each point worsening) 1.22 (1.10–1.37) < 0.001
 Age (each year older) 0.99 (0.97–1.01) 0.44
 Female (vs Male) 2.86 (0.66–12.44) 0.16
 Hours in last 7 days (for each additional hour) 0.98 (0.96–1.00) 0.05
Poor Work Performancec
 Burned out (vs. not) 2.15 (1.43–3.24) 0.0002
 Fatigue (for each point worsening) 1.22 (1.12–1.33) < 0.0001
 Age (each year older) 0.97 (0.95–0.98) < 0.0001
 Female (vs Male) 0.68 (0.30–1.51) 0.34
  1. aFactors in the model: age, relationship status, sex, have children, work hours/week, academic degree (undergraduate [associate or BA] vs. graduate [Maters, Doctorate, other]), practice setting [inpatient vs. not], burnout, depression, fatigue, satisfaction with work-life balance. Forward stepping logistic regression w/ backwards stepping confirmatory run. Age and sex were kept in the model because these are traditional confounders; burnout was also kept in the models
  2. bMissed ≥ 1 day of work due to personal health in the last month
  3. cSelf-rated work performance score 0–8 on the World Health Organization Health and Work Performance Questionnaire
