Background Organisational justice influences job satisfaction, the performance of individuals and the functioning of institutions. The lack of evidence-based studies investigating the relationship between hemodialysis nurses' perceptions of organisational justice, job satisfaction and burnout has created a research gap in this area. Objective To investigate the effect of perceived organisational justice on professional satisfaction and burnout levels of haemodialysis nurses and to identify any relation ship with individual and organisational factors. Material and Methods The study was designed as a multi-centre descriptive study. The data were collected using the 'personal information form', the Organisational Justice Scale', the 'Maslach Burnout Inventory' and the 'Minnesota Satisfaction Questionnaire'. Results The distributive justice scores decreased as the depersonalisation scores of the nurses increased. As the personal accomplishment scores of the nurses increased, the interactional justice scores also increased. It was observed that the job satisfaction scores increased as the sub-dimensional scores of the organisational justice scale increased and exhaustion decreased. Conclusion It was detected that there was a significant relationship between the organisational justice perception of nurses and their job satisfaction and level of burnout. Institutions are encouraged to adopt a fair policy towards nurses and promote personal development.
