Stress is not a foreign subject to the student nurse. The student nurse may cope effectively or ineffectively with the stress they perceive. Researchers are starting to study how stress effects student nurse performance. Haack (1985) reported that student nurses are experiencing burnout long before graduation. The presence of burnout at such an early stage means that students are having difficulty managing the stress involved in nursing education. That can be done to help student nurses cope more effectively? Integration of time management and stress management classes into the nursing education program and also the development of a peer counseling program are some ideas. With early prevention programs, maybe the impaired student nurse can become obsolete.
