Using purposive sampling technique, the respondents were taken from four (4) selected hospitals in Cavite namely: De La Salle University Medical Center, Dr. Jose P.

The study used a self-made questionnaire regarding the level of work-related stress of the staff nurses in selected hospital in Cavite. Data was analyzed through frequency distribution, percentage, mean, t-test and f-test. The study concluded that majority of the respondents were ages between 21 to 30 years old, assigned in the ward areas, female, single, worked for about 41 to 50 duty hours per week, and served for about five (5) years and below in their respective hospitals. The general mean of work-related stress is 3.85. This indicates that the respondents experienced stress to a least extent. Workload had the lowest mean level of 3.60, which indicates stress to a least extent and nursing practices had the highest mean level of 4.23, which indicates that this is not a source of stress for the staff nurses. On the average, there were no significant differences on the level of work-related stress in terms of age, civil status, gender, length of duty hours, and length of service. However, there was a significant difference on the level of work-related stress of staff nurses according to their area of assignment.
