Abstract
To identify the main job stressors of ICU nurses, and analyze their causes, influencing factors and correlation. Application of current status investigation methods, general information and the scale of “Chinese Nurse Stress Source Scale” of 301 ICU nurses at seven class A grade III general hospitals in Dalian were investigated and analyzed. The scores of “frequent shifts” are (3.35 ± 1.00), the scores of “too much work” are (2.87 ± 1.06), and the scores of “worry about mistakes in work” are (2.85 ± 1.06); Multiple linear regression analysis shows that education, working years in ICU, and average monthly salary are the main influencing factors that affect the nursing and work dimension (P < 0.05), R2=0.148. Age, working years in ICU, and average monthly salary are the main influencing factors that affect the time allocation and workload dimension (P < 0.05), =0.101. Working years in ICU is the main influencing factor of the patient care dimension (P < 0.05), =0.022; The result of Spearman correlation analysis shows that the degree of perceived job stressors and influencing factors have a significant correlation (P < 0.05). The study shows that “Frequent shifts”, “too much work”, and “worry about mistakes in work” are the main job stressors, “age”, “education”, “working years in ICU”, and “average monthly salary” are the main influencing factors, there is significant correlation between the degree of perceived job stressors and influencing factors.
