Results: 60.7% of them reported that working with long standing patients in hospital was stressful before teaching the guidelines, but after teaching the guidelines, 46.4%of them reported that these patients were stressful. Also 48.2% of them reported that working with patients who need constant observation and supervision is most stressful.Conclusion: In order to further the development of scientific knowledge, the findings of this research must be communicated to student. Therefore, plans for disseminating the results of this research include an academic presentation. students who trained in areas of especially high stress (e.g. acute psychiatric units) should be offered regular student support groups led by an appropriately qualified person.
