Abstract
In the health care profession, more specifically with nursing staff, the incidence of compassion fatigue and burnout has become an increasing problem over the years. “Nursing is the profession in which most of the nurses entered with an intention to help out others and endow with compassionate care for patients with critical physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual needs”. Empathic and caring nurses, however, can become sufferers of the continuing stress of meeting the often overwhelming needs of patients and their families, resulting in CF (compassion fatigue). CF (Compassion fatigue) not only affects the nurse‟s job satisfaction, emotional and physical health, but also affects the workplace environment by decreasing productivity and increasing turnover. Thus, the study explored STS (Secondary Traumatic Stress), BO (Burnout) and CS (Compassion Satisfaction) along with CF (Compassion Fatigue) of Nurses. For the purpose of study ProQOLdeveloped by Stamm was used. Study found average to moderately low BO (Burnout) and STS (Secondary Traumatic Stress) with moderately high Compassion Satisfaction (CS).

Key words: CF (Compassion fatigue), STS (Secondary Traumatic Stress), BO (Burnout), CS (Compassion satisfaction), Nurses.
