Abstract

The correlation research design was used to determine the level of stress and stress management of the junior and senior radiologic technology students. One hundred sixty-four (164) respondents were selected using purposive sampling. The questionnaire used to determine the level of stress was adapted from the instrument developed by Ana Smith entitled Level of Stress Questionnaire For Students. The stress management questionnaire was adapted from the study of Ilustre, Bautista, Alegre and Fabro (2005). The statistical tools used were frequency, percentage, mean, standard deviation and t-test. The following conclusions were drawn: (1) Most of the respondents were female, senior level and had regular status; (2) The junior and senior radiologic technology students had low stress level; (3) The stress management mostly used by the students was the emotional aspect; (4) The level of stress of the junior radiologic technology students was the same regardless of gender and year level. However, regular students experienced a high level of stress than irregular students; (5) There was no significant difference in the stress management of the respondents when they were grouped according to gender, year level and student type. However, there was a significant difference when grouped according to gender as regards to physical aspect and year level as regards to social aspect; (6) There was no significant relationship between the level of stress and the stress management used by the respondents in terms of physical, cognitive and spiritual aspects. However, there was a significant relationship between the level of stress and the stress management in terms of emotional and social aspects.
