Abstract

Purpose This study aimed to access the reliability and validity of the Stressors in Nursing Students Scale in the Turkish language (SINS-T). Design and Methods Data were collected after the linguistic and content validity of the instrument. The study included 436 nursing students. Findings The exploratory factor analysis was acceptable, and four factors were determined. These factors were named confidence, education, relationships, and uncertainties. Practice Implications The SINS-T is a valid and reliable tool to determine the stress experienced by nursing students. Conducting different studies with a large sample size using this instrument will help expose nursing students' stress and its' outcomes.
