The purpose of this study was to examine trends in MSW graduate student's self-reported levels of healthy habits, family support and relationships during education, self-care, personal standards, as well as time management, and what the implications of those things are related to student burnout. The hypothesis was that students are burned out before they enter the social work field professionally. This poses a problem because the social work field has an already high level of burnout, turnover, and compassion fatigue. This study examines the trends in both the online pathways program and the on-the- ground ground program.
