Results: The total scores of job burnout and organizational support were 36.65±19.79 and 53.53±10.70 respectively. Job burnout was positively correlated with perceived organizational support (P<0.01). Conclusions: Job burnout and perceived organizational support of nurses are moderate under the two-child policy. Nursing administrators should provide and implement targeted organizational support measures to promote nurses' physical and mental needs and improve nursing quality.
