Abstract

It is well recognized that ”stress pressure” is the chief contributing factor associated with the high turnover rate for the new nursing staffs in the hospital. The specific aim of this pilot study is to establish a simple and can be deleted reliable instrument to assess the stress perception for the new nursing staffs.Method: The research was conducted in three stages: Firstly, information were collected through direct on-site observations on the job performance and followed by interviewing with the designated studying subjects. Secondly, focus group were processed twice to analyze data and the instrument of new nursing staff stress was established based these data. The strength item contain includes personal ability, workload, relationship, work environment, and professional role totally includes sixteen items in five-part item. The seventeenth item was whole stress. Lastly, 45 participants from a local teaching hospital were sampled and asked to fill out the questionnaire using a visual analog scale. The information gathered will then be analyzed in order to test the reliability of this proposed stress-based questionnaire.Result: Our data indicate that internal consistency reliability coefficient (Cronbach's α) and criterion validity coefficient were 0.94 and 0.83, respectively. These data suggest that our proposed instrument for ”stress” is acceptable.Conclusion: Our proposed measuring questionnaire for stress evaluation for new-coming nurses is useful, and reliable. However, it is recommend that further studies be made in order to improve the stability of instrument.
