Introduction: Job stress is a problem in the work place. Nursing is one of the most stressful jobs. This stress leads to a decrease in quality of nursing cares. The purpose of this study was to determine the effect of educational stress management program, based on Precede model, to decrease stress levels in nurses.
Methods: A quasi experimental study was carried out on the nurses. The sample size was 29 nurses from Fatemieh hospital as experimental group and 29 nurses from Beheshti hospital of Hamedan as control group. The samples were selected randomly. NSS and PSS were used to determine job and perceived stress and Precede scale was used for intervention. Six sections of intervention were done, each for 60-180 minutes. Nurses were followed for 1.5 months. The data were analyzed with descriptive and inferential statistic with SPSS-13.
Results: The average score of job stress before intervention in experimental group was 113 and in control group was 109.82, with no significant difference. But, after intervention, the average score of job stress in experimental group was decreased to 94.03 and in control group was 109.2 (P<0.001). After intervention, perceived stress score average in experimental group decreased to 24.03, compare to control group that was 29.51 (P<0.01). After intervention, predisposing, reinforcing and enabling factors rate and stress management behavior in experimental group rather than control group were increased (P<0.001).
Conclusion: Results showed efficacy and effectiveness of educational intervention based on Precede model to decrease nursing stress.
