Abstract

Background: Since work related stress imposes an uncustomary and irreversible adverse effect on work structure, it is considered as one of the most important job hazards in the health industry especially in hospitals. Objective: This study aimed to determine the Job stress and its related factors in nurses of Qazvin University of Medical Sciences. Methods: This is a descriptive cross sectional research study done by sampling census on 112 nursing personnel in one of the Qazvin educational medical hospitals in 2010 with use of a standard stress questionnaire. Information gathering tool included two sections of demographic information and job stress in 7 parts and SPSSWIN/18 software with a 95% confidence was used to evaluate the findings. Findings: Results indicate that 4.6% of the nurses have low job related stress; 74.1% with medium job related stress and 21.3%confront high job related stress. Since this study was based on evaluation of major important stressors; results indicated that between amount of intensity of work stress and demographic particulars of the studied society like sex, age, years of service, kind of employment ,level of education, work shift and amounts received have no significant relationship (P>0.05). Pearson coefficient correlation test results also indicated the followings: job stress or role ambiguity (P<0.001), over-loaded role (P=0.001), role scarcity (P=0.001), work intensity (P=0.004), work repetition (P<0.001) have a straight line relationship (P<0.05). Conclusion: Based on the results of various studies, work stress whether in a positive form or negative form, constitute an important part of individuals working life; hence with the existence of medium to high work stress intensity in the studied society we have to point out that long term stress at work will cause an irreparable damage and we have to change management view points and pay special attention for making a suitable work related condition or effective intervention in the important factors to reduce or eliminate stress from the work arenas, hence improving the quality of nursing services.
