 Abstract
This study was conducted to identify the level of empathy and clinical practice stress and the relationship between empathy and clinical practice stress in nursing students. Data were collected from 252 nursing students between 1st September and 31st December 2013. 249 questionnaires were analyzed using descriptive statistics, t-test, ANOVA, and Pearson`s correlation coefficient. The mean scores of empathy level in the subcategories for perspective taking 3.57, fantasy 3.59, empathic concern 3.72 and personal distress 3.15 were above median and the mean score for clinical practice stress 3.03 was above median. Clinical practice stress positively correlated with personal distress on empathy. These findings indicate that there is a need to manage personal distress on empathy for nursing students with high level of personal distress to lessen stress in clinical practice of nursing students.
