An Assessment into Levels of Stress among Experienced Nurses (2013)
Stress among Experienced Nurses Dissertation – This dissertation will represent my attempt at trying to accommodate the definition of stress among nurses using the means of a reflective account. Throughout this dissertation, I have obtained certain areas that a practitioner will require; in order to bring improvement to my field of study, work and operations that are in accordance to the need to maintain the comfort of patients and minimise the stress level among the nurses who are involved.
Reflective account has been implemented into the examination of the areas that will require improvement. The aim of this dissertation is to expose the tangible level of stress among experienced nurses. The level of stress among the nurses will be identified based on a reflective methodology. According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) stress is today termed as a worldwide epidemic. Certain types of stress can be termed as unavoidable and at times can even be important for an individual.
At the same time when an individual is not able to cope with the stress that has been induced on them; it can cause harm to the individual- both from an emotional and physical form. By the 1990s, stress was already classified as the second highest catalyst for sicknesses among human beings (National Audit Office). Stress is one of the most common means of physically hazardous emotional symptoms that affects nurses around the world.
Stress is a dynamic relationship that mutually involves the relationship between the person and the surrounding environment. Stress can affect nurse both internally and externally because the responses that these nurses engage when under stress can be physical, psychological or spiritual.
