Background: Nurses are among those who are stressed due to their high sensitivity job in the workplace. In addition, stress is associated with self-handicapping. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to compare the perceived stress and self-handicapping of nurses in various work shifts.
Materials and methods: Participants of this causal-comparative study were 72 nurses (32 morning shifts and 40 evening and night shifts) in one of hospitals in Tehran city during 2016-2017 that were selected by available sampling process. Determination of sample size was performed using Cochran’s formula. One-way analysis of variance was used to assess the difference between the three shifts.
Results: The results showed that there was no significant difference between the three groups in perceived stress. The results of multivariate analysis of variance showed that there is a significant difference between the three groups of nurses (p=0.001), so that in the claimed self-handicapping, the means of alteration changed from low- to high- values respectively in the morning to night shifts and, reversely, it was from high- to low- values in behavioral self-handicapping.
Conclusion: Perceived stress among nurses seems to be high due to the sensitivity of this work. In the context of self-handicapping, as the nurses should be decision-makers due to reduced access to specialists at nights, this feature is bolder.
