Nursing as a whole is a very stressful occupation to go into. From the pre-requisite classes one needs to take to even have a chance of getting into a nursing program; to the many clinical and classes that are required within nursing school, it is just a stressful school atmosphere as a whole. Then one needs to begin preparing for a national board exam that will basically dictate the rest of their life. Plus adding on family commitments, work life, and attempts for a bit of fun, it can all be very trying and consuming to an individual. It is a lot to handle and can be very stressful to the individual. ... There are many things that an individual can do to handle their stress. ... Deep breathing, relaxing stretching and exercising are the avenue the authors of this paper decided to explore.
