The nursing team provides integral care to the patient for 24 hours. In the cancer patient, besides the specialized assistance for the type of cancer and the proposed treatment, there are other aspects related to the most present and constant emotional support. This greater contact favors closer patient/ professional relationships, making nursing professionals share the whole process of becoming ill, suffering and in many cases, the death process. The overload of oncological patient care, in addition to institutional issues, requires the nursing team to be more attentive and with this can lead to burnout, occupational stress, anxiety and depression symptoms. Objective: To evaluate the levels of burnout, anxiety symptoms and depression among nursing professionals.
