Investigate the Impact of Workplace Stress on Job Productivity among Nurses

Krishnavellie Chetty

Abstract: Nurses are the largest working group in health care and they play a major role in the organisations success to meet the needs of the patients effectively and efficiently. As health care providers nurses are obliged to work during the day and night to cater for needs of the sick. Job stress in the nursing profession has been a persistent global problem for many years now. It has been associated with a variety of adverse attitudinal, behavioural, physical and emotional health consequences. Among behavioural and attitudinal consequences there has been diminished job satisfaction and decreased productivity. Medical science and technology development, rapid patient turnover and rising dependency of professionalism in nursing have increased the complexity and volume of nursing care. The researcher is of the opinion that for this reason, the nursing profession has increasingly characterized by workplace stress, frequent job turnover and decrease productivity. Studies have shown that shift work had created negative impact on job performance, sleep, physical and emotional health, social and family life and level of job related stress. These negative effects had consequences not only for the individual, but also for the workplace, as decreased alertness and reduced job performance endangered human lives.
