Abstract

Baccalaureate students enrolled in 6 accelerated programs reported their stress level, sources of stress, and coping strategies. They differentiated helpful from unhelpful coping strategies. Findings indicate that accelerated nursing students experienced high stress levels over prolonged periods that exceeded stress levels in prior life events. Implications for nurse educators in accelerated nursing programs are explored.
