This study investigates the relationship between Home-work stress, burnout, and the role of extra- and intra-organizational sources of social support in reducing that stress and buffering its impact on burnout. Data were collected from public hospital nurses and analyzed using regression techniques. Results indicated that different sources of social support relieve the strain of home-work stress. Some evidence of stress moderating role of social support was also found Results also suggested that married nurses (having children) were particularly vulnerable to home-work stress. Implications of this research are discussed for programmes aimed at preventing nurses burnout.
