MOYA NICOLAS, María et al. Stress perception in Nursing students facing their clinical practices. Enferm. glob. [online]. 2013, vol.12, n.31, pp.232-253. ISSN 1695-6141.

Objective: This research aims to establish what the Nursing students' main stress sources are during their practice period, according to their gender, grade and age. Methodology. It is a descriptive transversal study. The sample was composed by 45 Nursing students, 30 women and 15 men, at the University of Murcia in 2010/2011. The information gathering tool was KEZKAK questionnaire. Results. The ignorance facing a determined clinical situation and the risk of damaging the patient are the Nursing students' two main stress sources. Men often suffer from a bigger stress than women; nevertheless, as well as the age increases and the students pass grades, the stress level is smaller. Conclusions. Nursing students' stress determines their formation within their clinical practices period. Thus, it is necessary that the theoretical learning that supports these practices considers theses needs that own Nursing students require.

Keywords : Stress; Nursing students; clinical practices.
