Background: An increase in the number of nursing students who ask for psycho pedagogical help has been observed. They reveal signs and symptoms of negative emotional states. These facts have created the need for a diagnostic study of the emotional state of these students throughout the course. Objective of the study: To analyse the emotional states of the students drawn from the Nursing School of Coimbra, Portugal; Method: The Depression Anxiety and Stress Scale (DASS) and the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (PANAS) were administered to 229 nursing students, in the week prior to the students? final assessment. PANAS and DASS reliability was high, alphas sub-scales ranges 0,79 to 0,90. The scales? factorial structure was identical to the original versions. Results: Mean and SD values - Stress: 16,89, 9,49; Anxiety: 9,03; 7,40; Depression 8,59, 7,64; Positive affect: 29,29, 6,83 and Negative affect: 23,59, 7,49. Stress: 48,91% normal; 11,79% mild, 19,65% moderate; 12,66% severe and 6,99% extremely severe. Anxiety:  48,47% normal; 9,61% mild; 21,83% moderate, 6,55% severe and 13,54% extremely severe. Depression: 62,01% normal; 14,85% mild; 13,97% moderate; 6,55% severe and 2,62% extremely severe. These results show that there is a significant number of students who manifest negative emotional states. Study implications: These results are being institutionally used in two different ways: 1st, under a preventive perspective as a useful tool in the psycho pedagogical strategies for the follow-up and mentoring process and 2nd as a background for the recently established students psycho pedagogical help office.
