Abstract

This study employed a cross-sectional type of research. All full time nurses in DLSUMC were chosen as respondents using total enumeration. The researchers used the S.O.S (A measure of Day-to-Day Feelings) developed by Dr. James Amirkhan of the Psychology Department in California State University Long Beach. Data was then analysed using frequency, percentage, and p-value. Based on the results, wherein it showed an almost equal proportion of nurses in morning and night shift, majority experienced "low stress." Although nurses exposed to morning shift were shown to have an increased probability of having stress, an insignificant differences on the level of stress was seen among nurses on different shifts. The results of this cross-sectional study lead to the conclusion that there was no significant evidence to conclude that there is a relationship between level of stress and shift work among nurses in De La Salle University Medical Center (DLSUMC).
