Abstract (Summary)

This study was conducted to determine whether nurse practitioner (NP) students experienced different stress triggers and utilized different stress management techniques than undergraduate nursing students enrolled at a school of nursing program at a public university in a large metropolitan area in southern California. There have been no published studies comparing NP students with undergraduate nursing students related to stress triggers and management, thereby creating a need for this research.

A convenience sample of 64 NP students was compared to 36 undergraduate nursing students utilizing a demographic survey, Student Nurse Stress Index (SNSI), and Ways of Coping Questionnaire (WCQ). The results of the SNSI were significantly different for total scores on stress triggers and one of the four subscales, Academic Load. The results of the WCQ were significantly different for one of the eight stress management techniques, Accepting Responsibility.
