The purpose of this study was to provide the fundamental data for improving working environments for operating room nurses as well as the quality of surgical nursing. Methods: Study participants were 95 operating room nurses with at least three months of work experience in general and tertiary hospitals in S and G provinces. Data were collected from October 2021 to November 2021 using a structured questionnaire. Results: Factors affecting the participants’ burnout were verbal violence (β=.23, p=.007), the self-perceived health status “not healthy” (β=.21, p=.009), and job satisfaction: “dissatisfied” (β=.34, p<.001) and “moderate” (β=.44, p<.001). Work-oriented nursing organizational culture (β=.26, p=.007) had a moderating effect on the relationship between verbal violence and burnout. Conclusion: The results indicated that the verbal violence experienced by the participants affected their burnout, and work-oriented nursing organizational culture acted as a moderating variable. Therefore, a hospital’s organizational efforts to reduce verbal violence in the operating room and develop a well-balanced nursing organizational culture must be aimed at lowering nurse burnout.
