Subjective mood variations of student nurses during clinical practice : A pilot study.
Subjective moods of student nurses during the clinical practice training course in hospital were measured using the Stress Arousal Check List (J-SACL).
The mental state of student nurses was evaluated on three occasions : on the first day in the morning and in the afternoon, and on the last day in the morning.
The evaluated stress and arousal moods of students in the obstetrics and the aged care sections were compared.
The results showed that students possessed strong stress and low arousal feelings at the beginning of the first day of clinical practice in obstetrics, whereas they felt no stress and relatively high arousal on the first day of clinical practice in the aged care section.
The feelings of stress persisted throughout the day in the obstetrics section.
These feelings decreased, however, during the two weeks'clinical practice.
Based upon these findings, evaluation methods of students'subjective feelings and instructional suggestions for supervisors in clinical practice were discussed.
