Abstract

Introduction: Job stress is a problem in the work place. Nursing is one of the most
stressful jobs. This stress leads to a decrease in quality of nursing cares. The purpose of
this study was to determine the effect of educational stress management program, based
on Precede model, to decrease stress levels in nurses.
Methods: A quasi experimental study was carried out on the nurses. The sample size was
29 nurses from Fatemieh hospital as experimental group and 29 nurses from Beheshti
hospital of Hamedan as control group. The samples were selected randomly. NSS and PSS
were used to determine job and perceived stress and Precede scale was used for
intervention. Six sections of intervention were done, each for 60-180 minutes. Nurses were
followed for 1.5 months. The data were analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistic
with SPSS-13.
Results: The average score of job stress before intervention in experimental group was
113 and in control group was 109.82, with no significant difference. But, after
intervention, the average score of job stress in experimental group was decreased to 94.03
and in control group was 109.2 (P<0.001). After intervention, perceived stress score
average in experimental group decreased to 24.03, compare to control group that was
29.51 (P<0.01). After intervention, predisposing, reinforcing and enabling factors rate
and stress management behavior in experimental group rather than control group were
increased (P<0.001).
Conclusion: Results showed efficacy and effectiveness of educational intervention based
on Precede model to decrease nursing stress.
