We ascertained features of work as well as its perceptions and associated concerns in relation to risk of anxiety and depression, while controlling for health history. Our findings may help develop mitigation measures and underscore the need to help nurses and physicians bear the psychological burden of COVID-19 pandemic and similar events in the future.
