Background and objective: Inappropriate function of organizations is directly associated with the physical and psychological health of the society. One such organizations are medical universities which are responsible for educating students of nursing. This study focuses on the association of educational planning with the mental health of nursing students of Tehran Medical Science University with emphasis on the educational stressor factors and stress management methods.
Materials and methods: In this descriptive-cross sectional two questionnaires were used: researcher-made questionnaire (a = 0.71) and Jalowiec Coping Styles Questionnaire. The correlation coefficient of test and retest after 3 weeks was used for Jalowiec questionnaire (r=0. 89). The random sampling method among nursing students of Tehran University Medical science was used and the size of the sample was 376. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and analytical ones (t-test and ANOVA) through SPSS 21.
Results: Out of 354 students, 32.1% were suspected to have psychological disorders. These disorders were 29.7% among females and 34.6% among males, respectively. There was a statistical correlation between mental health and previous physical illnesses (p<0.05). There was a significant correlation between stressful factors experienced and mental health. In addition, there was a significant correlation between mental health and educational stressful factors such as negative attitudes in the community about nursing and ambiguity about professional role of nurses at the time of education (p<0.05).
Conclusion: A number of nursing students were suspicious to have mental disorders. Therefore, in order to prevent physical and psychological destructive effects of stress on students, it is recommended to think about the educational stressful factors to diminish mental problems.
