Abstract

The purpose of this study was to identify factors associated with premenstrual syndrome among nursing students. Participants were 159 nursing students 2 colleges in B metropolitan city and 1 university in K city. Data were collected between October 28 and November 15, 2016 using structured questionnaires. Data were analyzed with the SPSS 21.0 program using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, Pearson's correlation coefficient and multiple regression. In nursing students premenstrual syndrome was significantly positive correlated with stress(r=-.396, p<.001) and menstrual attitude(r=-.176, p=.027). The significant factors that influence premenstrual syndrome were stress(${\beta}=.36$, p<.001) and dysmenorrhea(${\beta}=.22$, p=.003), which explained 19.4%. The results indicate a need to manage the premenstrual syndrome of nursing students. The finding also suggest that consideration be given to duration of menstruation, menstrual quantity and peri-menstrual dysphoria in developing strategies to reduce stress and dysmenorrhea and developing programs to manage the premenstrual syndrome among nursing students.
