INTRODUCTION: The aim of this study is to determine the factors affecting the educational stress of nursing undergraduate students.
METHODS: This descriptive study was conducted with 585 students attending nursing undergraduate programs in two different universities. "Socio-Demographic Characteristics Data Form" and "Nursing Education Stress Scale" were used in the data collection. The data were analyzed in the SPSS 20.0 statistical program. Number, percentage, mean, standard deviation, t-test, one way variance analysis and correlation analysis were used in the evaluation of the data.
RESULTS: The mean application stress score of the students was 30.45 ± 8.48, the academic stress score was 30.79 ± 8.09, and the total stress score was 61.25 ± 15.74. The stress score of the application was significantly higher in girls who were not satisfied with the physical condition of the school, and when they were unstable in choosing the nursing department (p  lt;0.05). Academic stress scores were found to be significantly higher in female students, in the students in the west, not satisfied with the physical condition of the school, and not at all satisfied with the nursing curriculum (p  lt;0.05).
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: It is recommended that the physical conditions are regulated in both schools where the work is done, that the nursing departments are introduced more effectively and that their curricula are reviewed again.
