The purpose of this descriptive study is to identify stressors in early post-renal transplant recipients. In the year 2000, the National Kidney Foundation reported that 13,372 End Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) patients received renal transplants. A significant amount of research has been conducted concerning stressors in post renal transplant recipients. The majority of this data has been collected from recipients six weeks to ten years post transplantation. This study identifies stressors immediately following initial hospital discharge. Nurses must have an idea of the stressors these recipients may be experiencing immediately post discharge so that they may better assist the recipients with adaptation. This study is conceptualized within Roy’s Adaptation Model. Identifying stressors in the early post-renal transplant patient will increase nursing knowledge. This is valuable for nurses who try to increase coping efficacy and enhance adaptation in this population. Roy’s theory illustrates that nurses can have a significant impact on the adaptive outcome of the transplant recipient. A convenience sample of up to 50 transplant recipients is used. Participants are transplant recipients attending clinic appointments within two weeks post initial discharge from the hospital. The Kidney Transplant Recipient Stress Scale (KTRSS) is used. The KTRSS was piloted using patients up to two years post kidney transplant. Since this original study, data have been published using the KTRSS in patients ranging from six weeks to more than five years post transplant. After an exhaustive literature search, it was determined that the KTRSS has not been used with patients at a time period earlier than six weeks post transplantation. Analysis of data includes descriptive statistics and reliability coefficient. Understanding of stressors will hopefully increase the effectiveness of post transplant nursing care. Transplant educators would also have the ability to focus teaching in the areas where patients might need it the most.
