Osman Muhammed, Adem Guye

This study examined the effects of empowerment on job burnout: the mediating role of job satisfaction in case of Arba Minch General Hospital, Southern Ethiopia. This study conducted within the post- positivist philosophy using deductive research approach and survey research strategy. Using probability sampling method a sample size of 140 employees was selected out of 217 nurses employed in hospital. Based on response rate of 94 %, the collected data was edited and finally analyzed using statistical packaging for social science (SPSS) version 20 and AMOS version 23. The correlation result revealed that both the dimensions of structural and psychological empowerment have strong relationship with job satisfaction and job burnout except information, which have moderate relationship with both job satisfaction and job burnout. In addition regression path analysis showed that both dimensions of structural and psychological empowerment have negative effect on job burnout. Their level of significance indicates that all dimension except information and resources have significant impact on job burnout. Regression analysis path also showed that all dimensions of structural empowerment have insignificant positive relationship with job satisfaction. However, from dimensions of psychological empowerment only meaning and self determination has positive and significant effect on job satisfaction. Finally, the study confirmed that job satisfaction doesn’t play any mediating role between employee empowerment and job burnout. Based on the findings of the study it is recommended that to make the benefit of having engaged nurse and talented, happy and skilled nurses, the hospital administrators need to empower the nurse in the hospital.
