Abstract

The purpose of this study was to investigate the stress from work and stress coping methods of hospital nurses. The study design was a descriptive survey research. There were a total of 168 hospital nurses included in this study. Data were analyzed by t test, ANOVA (Sheffe's test), and Pearson's correlation coefficient using SPSS/WIN17.0. The stress level from work was 4.27 and stress coping methods was 2.67. Marital status was positively correlated with education level, current department, career duration, and current position. The education level was positively correlated with career period and current position. Current position was positively correlated with stress coping methods. A further follow-up study on nurses in hospital is necessary to relieve stress from work and to increase better stress coping methods. Moreover, to decrease the stress from work of nurses, it is necessary to develop a program that helps them to cope with stress. In addition, these findings contribute to the development of such program.
