Introduction: Midwifery services comprise community health. In addition to the tensions of the educational environment, the students of this field are also exposed to the tensions of the clinical environment. With consideration to the importance of midwifery education, the current research was conducted with the aim of determining the stress factors in the clinical education of midwifery students.
Methods: This cross-sectional goal-oriented study was conducted in the fall of 1400. The research tools consisted of a personal information questionnaire and a survey questionnaire on stress factors in clinical education, including stress factors in eight areas, which were distributed among 85 midwifery students in North Khorasan province. Then, the data were analyzed using the statistical software SPSS 23 and statistical indicators of mean, standard deviation, frequency distribution and Chi-square.
Results: 80 out of 85 students completed the questionnaires. Clinical stressors were generally ranked as low stress with a score of 189. The areas of unpleasant feelings and clinical experiences, patient, educational environment and student’s skills were ranked as low stress with the respective scores of 196, 145, 174, 171. Clinical instructor and clinical experiences areas with scores of 225 and 254 ranked as medium stress. The student's personality was ranked as stress-free with a score of 132.
Conclusion: Considering the higher level of stress in the areas of the instructor and clinical experiences, it is necessary to reduce the tension by dealing with its sources so that the students can perform their duties as stable and efficient forces after graduation.
