Stress is a specific response to the stimulus that disturbs the normal body functions. Stress affects the academic performance and welfare of nursing students. The aim of this study was to identify the severity of stress and the stressors among undergraduate nursing students. Two hundred students in the nursing programme in a college completed a survey on stress and stressors. The tool included demographic characteristics, perceived stress scale and a checklist to assess the stressors. The result was analysed using descriptive statistics. Majority of the students (88%) reported moderate level of stress. Large number of the subjects have stress due to less vacation, and the second major stressor was lack of sick leave. Identification of severity of stress and taking measures will improve the students to cope up with the academic and personal issues. The findings of this study can be used to design effective stress management programme for nursing students.
