Chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) among nurses and healthcare workers was evaluated via a questionnaire examining CFS, sociodemographic factors, lifestyle, work capacity and education. The criteria of the Centers for Disease Control were applied. One hundred and eighty-three nurses and 18 healthcare workers (mean age 29.04 ± 5.31 years) participated. More than half of cases (n = 116, 57.7%) complained of fatigue. Thirty-six cases (17.9%) fully matched the criteria of the CDC for CFS. High income level (> 400/month) (p = 0.005) and overworking (> 8 hr/day) (p = 0.017) had a significant effect on CFS [high income (OR: 9.60, CI, 95%: 1.98 – 46.54) and overworking (OR: 7.66, CI, 95%: 1.44 – 40.92), respectively]. CFS was also related to being under 35 years old.
