[Research Presentation] Purpose: The aims of the research are to explore the symptoms of the nursing job stress and the relationship of demographic variables, family environments (with significant others or not, perceived burden of family financial status, workload on household, conflict degrees on household ) and burden from nursing jobs on the degree of the stress symptoms in a regional hospital in South Taiwan. Methods: A descriptive and cross-sectional study design was used. From August 13 to August 26, 2008, a total of 166 nurses that met the criteria for the study were collected.  Data were analyzed by Pearson correlation, one-way ANOVA,  logistic regression analysis and mixed model. Results: The major factors that correlated with the number of self-perceived  work stress symptoms in nurses were present work location, degree of stress resulting from nursing work, total work hours per day, and previous working experience. Within this, the number of self-perceived work stress symptoms in medical ward nurses and intensive care nurses was significantly different, and the number of stress symptoms in medical ward nurses was 1.88 more than intensive care nurses (p=0.00). The number of stress symptoms in nurses who perceived the degree of stress resulting from nursing work as "low" was 5.36 less than those who perceived the degree of stress as "high". Moreover, the number of symptoms increased by 0.44 with each 1 hour increase in total work hours per day, and the number of symptoms decreased by 0.12 with each 1 year increase in work experience. Conclusion:  Simplifying the procedures and empowering nurse?s ability are recommend to resolve the problem on prolonged total working hours. The classes for stress adaptation are suggested to assist nurses to minimize the perceived degree of stress.
