In this 2-year follow-up of 100 nurses, significant increases were observed for burnout and depressive symptomatology.
Analysis of change scores and structural equations suggested that the variance shared by burnout and depression (20%) may be attributable to their codevelopment.
A definitive temporal sequence among measures of burnout and depressive affect was not obtained.
At initial assessment and follow-up, burned-out nurses displayed accurate perceptions of job uncontrollability, whereas non-burned-out nurses overestimated job control.
Perceptual accuracy increased in linear fashion with degree of burnout, irrespective of depressive symptomatology.
Frequency of threats to job control predicted a significant amount of the variance in perceptual accuracy, supporting the view that « burnout realism » is reality driven.
