Objectives: This study aimed to describe levels of stress, physio-psycho-social status, coping behaviors of nursing students at Duy Tan University related factors on level of stress.
Method: The cross-sectional study design was conducted among 200 nursing students at Duy Tan University in 2020. The data were collected by using three self-determination questionnaires: the Student Nurse Stress Index (SNSI), the Physio-Psycho-Social Response Scale (PPSRS), and the Coping Behavior Inventory (CBI).
Results: The major finding were as follows: Stress of nursing students were at the moderate level (60.2 ± 13.5), and stress for these students came mainly from academic load (21.5 ± 4.6). Nursing students were in good physio-psycho-social health (1.41 ± 0.60), and emotional symptoms were the most common response to stress (1.85 ± 0.77). Students used more positive coping strategies than negative strategies, and the most frequently used coping mechanism was optimistic behavior (2.51 ± 0.72). There were statistically significant differences between academic year, living expenses, interest in Nursing, and level of stress (F=17.36, p<0.01; F= 2.84, p=0.04; F=6.69, p<0.01 respectively).
Conclusion: Stress was a moderate level among nursing students. Effective intervention strategies are needed to reduce or prevent stress in nursing students. So that this study has important implications for nursing educators in helping their students to overcome stress during stydying.
