Stress is an emotional and physical strain caused by our response to pressure from the outside world. It is a specific response by the body to a stimulus that disturbs normal functioning. Students are subjected to different kinds of stressors such as the pressure of academics with an obligation to succeed. Students also face social, emotional, physical and family problems. Stress results from the interaction between stressors. Nursing students are likely to experience more stress than their friends and colleagues enrolled in other programmes. This study was conducted among the midwifery students enrolled in the diploma nursing and BSc nursing courses. A self-administered stress questionnaire prepared by the investigator was used to assess the factor causing stress among midwifery students. The study revealed that majority of midwifery students of both diploma and BSc nursing reported high stress related to clinical experience and interpersonal reasons.
