Maj Indira Das, Lt Col Meena Chacko


Abstract: BackgroundBasic BSc Nursing course is a demanding training which requires the ability to withstand stressful situations like death and emergencies. It also needs good academic knowledge and skills, as well as dedication to the profession. The nursing students perceive variable amount of academic, clinical, interface and personal stressors throughout their training which results in growing cases of anxiety, depression and adjustment issues leading to dropouts among student nurses. Aim to assess the stressors among Basic BSc Nursing students in a selected college. Methodology120 students were selected by stratified random sampling from each of1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th year. A structured questionnaire was administered comprising of two sections, Section A consists of 6 items to collect information regarding demographic data and Section B consists of 34 items to assess the stressors. Resultsthe maximum contribution to stress was of Clinical and Academic stressors followed by Interface stressors. The difference between mean percentage stress score (5.96) of the age group 17-20 years and that of age group 21-24 years was significant which proves that nursing students with younger age have less stress in comparison to others. The difference between mean percentage stress score (8.57) of students who had their fathers working in defence services and other occupations, is statistically significant. It confirms, the students from a defence background perceive more stress than others. Conclusion the students are mainly encountered with clinical and academic stressors and age of the students and fathers occupation have an association with the higher perception of stress. Hence the study strongly suggests that, Nursing faculty should create caring and supportive learning environments that facilitate students coping and persistence, perceived self- efficacy, and success in nursing.
