Abstract Introduction: Perfectionism is considered as a characteristic personality for striving performance without deficiency of excessively high standards by tendencies for overly critical evaluations of one’s behaviour in addition job burnout is a variable that could be increased by unhealthy perfectionism and outcomes. Although perfectionism considered appropriate but it may lead to increase some problems like burnout in some vocations like nursing. Objectives: Investigating the relation between perfectionism and job burnout in 344 nurses in Rasht in 2008. Materials and Methods: In this descriptive- correlation study, 344 nurses were selected by cluster random sampling of Razi, Dr Heshmat, Velayat, Poorsina and Amir- al- momenin Hospitals in Rasht. Frost multi perfectionism inventory was used for studying perfectionism and Maslach and Jakson’s job burnout inventory was used for studying job burnout. Correlation coefficient and regression and Manova were used for data analysis. Our hypothesis imparted reverse correlation between positive relation and negative dimensions of perfectionism. Results: The results showed that there was a negative relation between job burnout, organization, parental expectance and personal standards (t=-0.227,-0.131,-0.132 respectively, P<0.05). Regression analysis showed that just organization dimension can predicted job burnout in our sample (Beta=-0/197, t=-3/555).In addition age was significant in two younger groups as a prespective variable in relation with profectionism criterion variable. Conclusion: This study showed that job burnout will be decreased by improving positive dimensions of perfectionism such as organization and personal standards. Also perfectionism in younger nurses is more than older ones, so it is better to improve positive dimensions of perfectionism to promotion the quality of their services.
