Effect of Mindfulness Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) Programme for Reducing the Stress Level of Nursing Student

Overview

Purpose: This research was planned to determine the effect of mindfulness-based stress reduction program on reducing the stress level and emotion regulation of nursing students. Design: The research was planned as a pretest, posttest, follow-up and randomized controlled study in order to determine the effect of the mindfulness-based stress reduction program on the stress level and emotion regulation of nursing students. Hypotheses: H1: The perceived stress level scores of nursing students in the intervention group participating in the mindfulness-based stress reduction program will decrease compared to the nursing students in the control group. H2: The perceived stress level of the nursing students in the intervention group participating in the mindfulness-based stress reduction program will decrease according to their pretest scores. H3: Emotion regulation strategies of nursing students in the intervention group participating in the mindfulness-based stress reduction program will differ from the nursing students in the control group. H4: The posttest and follow-up emotion regulation strategies of nursing students in the intervention group participating in the mindfulness-based stress reduction program will differ from the pretest.

The total score from the scale indicates the stress level of the person. A score between 11-26 indicates a low stress level, a score between 27-41 indicates a medium stress level, and a score between 42-56 indicates a high stress level.
