Abstract:

Nursing students experience stress from many different facets. Stress has a negative impact on academic performance and cognition. Research shows the positive effects mirthful laughter has on psychological and physiological health. This pilot project evaluated the effectiveness Laughter Yoga had on stress and coping. Cohen’s Perceived Stress Scale-10 and a stress and coping questionnaire measured project outcomes. The overall results give anecdotal evidence for continuing projects to evaluate student stress and coping strategies.
