Nurses both in the COVID and non-COVID wards who provide services in taking care of patients are most affected during the COVID-19 pandemic. Using purposive sampling among nurses (n=210), assigned in covid (n=105) and non-covid wards (n=105), this study compared their burn-out, COVID-anxiety, psychological distress, and demographic profile while on duty. Results showed that nurses in both wards who experience burnout significantly differ in terms of age, marital status, work hours, and work experience. Nurses in COVID & non-COVID wards who suffer from COVID-19 anxiety are also significantly different in terms of civil status and educational attainment. Findings also reveal that nurses in the COVID ward are more likely to experience burnout and psychological distress than nurses from the non-COVID wards. Overall, COVID ward nurses experience more burnout and psychological distress but non-COVID ward nurses also experience this. Implications and recommendations of the study are suggested to help uplift the mental health conditions of nurses while on duty during the pandemic.
