Based on the transactional model of stress, this study was conducted to measure the perceived level and sources of stress experienced by nursing students studying the General Nursing Diploma (GND) course at Tuen Mun Hospital nursing school. In total 75 students ( 42%) from different years of the training were invited to participate in the study. Data was gathered by means of a questionnaire and analyzed mainly by frequency, two-sample t test, and one-way ANOV A The results showed that the stress level of the students was significantly higher than normal and the year 3 students experienced the highest level of stress and their level was significantly higher than that of year 2 students. Besides, the students reported that lacking clinical knowledge / experience to accomplish task, conflict with clinical staff: overwork and changing wards were most stressful to them Finally, coping strategies commonly employed by the students were explored and recommendations for reducing their stress were given.
